Hot buns, anyone?

As I have mentioned before, I look upon cars as a convenient way to get from point A to point B without an interminable wait at a bus stop, followed by a half hour ride with the inevitable weirdos. Ron, on the other hand, is a connoisseur. He has been doing research on the internet for a replacement for our older car for over a year, and finally made up his mind which one we should have. I was happy he had arrived at a decision, so off we went to the local dealership to test drive his choice.

The only thing I care about in a car is the colour, and we were fortunate to find a car that was the exact model Ron wanted, plus a very unique colour that I loved. When viewed in the shade, it's a very ordinary dark brown, but in bright sunlight it sparkles like Edward the vampire in Twilight. It would be easy to locate in a crowded parking lot.

After a test drive, the salesman, who was sitting in the back seat, walked us through some of the features. There was a volume control for the radio embedded in the steering wheel. How cool is that!

Then I noticed two little round buttons on the dashboard. I pressed one and it popped up.

"Those are your seat heaters," the salesman explained. Then he chuckled. "I call them bun warmers."

That was exactly what I was thinking. I glanced sideways at Ron, who was trying not to react. I wanted that car!

To make a long story short, we bought it, but it is too hot right now to test the seat heaters. That will have to wait. But in the meantime we have other methods of getting hot buns.

Love my seat heaters. Just bought myself a new Honda accord with my bun warmers again. Great in winter. You'll love them. Jackie

DelFonte said...

P's not only has bun warmers, it also has bun coolers. I'm sure they will come in very handy and not just in warm weather :)

Roz said...

LoL Hermoine. Congratulations on the new car! With that feature how could you not buy it?:)


Minielle Labraun said...

Oh I love how you see things!!
I've been in cars with that feature! It certainly is nice!

stay at home mom said...

Congratulations on buying the bun warmers, and there was a car in addition to that. Neat! :-)

LOL I drive around with the bun warmers on year round. Even today at 100 degrees outside with the AC cranked up, my back and buns will be toasty. I get tense and cranky without it. There's probably a 12 step program for me lol

ronnie said...


We have that feature and P's used it a few times. Enjoy your new car and the bun warmers.


Aimless Rambling said...

Congrats on the new car. Beware of hot buns.

Jay said...

Congrats! I probably wouldn't recommend trying out the bum warmer on an already warmed rear...those things can get quite hot! Lol, would it be considered a "warm-up" if you used the bum warmer prior to a spanking?

Cat said...

Congratulations on the new car Hermione! Matthew had bun warmers in his car. They were lovely in the winter when it is very cold outside...not so lovely when I was in trouble and already had hot buns. Hope you enjoy yours. ;)

Hugs and Blessings...

We had to replace my wifes Jeep last year and we got a Jeep Patriot. Not loaded, but it did have Bun Warmers and she uses them to keep her butt warm and I use them also. We have joked about them in the vein of spankings. Funny the things we laugh about.

Hermione said...

Abby - It wouldn't be too comfy to sit on with buns that are already toasted.

Jackie - I can't wait for winter to try them out.

Wait! Did I really say that?

DelFotne ; Bun coolers? That's a new one on me.

Roz - Exactly!

Minelle - I'm looking forward to trying it out.

Nina - All that and a car too :)

Chick - Maybe I should turn Ron's side on the next time he has road rage ;D

Ronnie - I hope he didn't use it instead of spanking you.

Leigh - Thank you!

Jay - A warm-up - what a good idea!

Cat - Luckily, the controls are on the passenger side, where I sit 90% of the time.

Baxter - Ooh, a Jeep! I would love to have one of those. It's the only type of car I have ever actually wanted to have.


Erica said...

Yay, a new car! But yeah, you don't need bun warmers. You have your own live-in bun warmer.

Lea said...

Those seat heaters are the best! My car didn't come with them, but you can get them on the internet - it lays over the seat like a cover and plugs into the lighter! Mine even has a vibrate feature; I love this thing!

Dragon's Rose said...

Congrats!! I have a new car too! It is new for me anyway. Love my little classic.

River Wild said...

Congrats! Bun warmers are a life saver in the winter.

ricky said...

Congrats on the new car!
But if you don't mind a little bit
of advice on bun warming:
Don't mix the two, otherwise you
might wind up with a bunburn.

garyntboy said...

But what's its bhp ? engine size ? 0-60 speed ? mpg ?.......Put Ron on the phone, we need more
Kind regards,

Hermione said...

Erica - You're right, but now I have two!

Lea - A vibrate feature? Darn! I wish I'd known so I could have asked for an upgrade.

Rose - Lucky you!

River - I'm sure they are.

Ricky - Wise words. thanks!

Gary - Um...what? Did I say it's brown? That's all I know.
