It turns out that batteries aren’t just for sex toys

 

Last night the heat stopped working. Talk about cold! This morning when I sat down to do some work and wait for the repairman to come by, I noticed it had dropped to 57 degrees in the house. Brrrrrrrrrrr! Here is a snippet from our conversation:

Him: These batter-powered control panels are always a nuisance. You know, it might just be the batteries. I don’t know that I have any extras in my truck, though.
Me: Oh, I have some!
Him: You do? AA?
Me: Yes, definitely! Um… in my, uh, toolbox. Be right back. (I run upstairs, rummage through a small box of sex toys, find a package of  brand new AA batteries and return with them).
Him: (replaces batteries… heat turns back on) Yep, that did it.

Moral of the story: sex toys save the day (again).

Second moral of the story: While sex toys may heat things up for the moment, batteries can heat things up all day long. Thank you, batteries.
