C: We Were So Bad Today…

There was nothing on the slate, particularly, today.  I knew I had to work a trip into the office women-on-phonesometime this weekend, and there is always plenty of work to do around here on the weekend, but no schedule.

So, my phone rang at 8:30 this morning as I was still sipping coffee in my pajamas.  It was V.  She had been on the phone with M, one of our close friends, and was now calling to invite me out with them.  So, see, it is either M’s or V’s fault (I suspect V).

Can you meet M  and me for breakfast at 9:30?”

I was game…I wouldn’t even shower.  I had just enough time. 

Sure!  Where do we meet up?”

You won’t believe what she said…I could hardly believe it when I heard it:

Krispy Kreme.”

What!!  This after I just wrote a post on the dangers of fast food?  Isn’t Krispy Kreme fast food danger squared???  krispy-kreme-logo

V explained:  “Well, it’s cheap, and I’m craving a maple iced doughnut.”

That was enough justification for me.  Naturally, I was the first one there, grabbing a table for the three of us and politely holding back my salivary glands as I waited on my companions, watching the children wolf down orange and brown “fall/halloween” doughnuts.

While I was waiting on them, I pulled out the trusty I-Pad and flipped to the Krispy Kreme site, thinking I’d peruse the choices in flavors.  My eye fell on the “Nutritional Facts” link.  With a fair amount of trepidation, I clicked on it, breathing a sigh of relief that there was absolutely no information on calorie and fat content (they wouldn’t dare).  There was only a statement that the ingredients were really, really good (in what sense, I wondered) and that they were certified Kosher!

mapledoughnut V and M arrived, we noshed on doughnuts (well, technically I had an apple fritter) and great coffee.  V got the maple doughnut she craved.  We spent a good hour and a half catching up with M and telling her our news.  It was great.

One of the high points came when V went to the bathroom (just hang with me a minute…).  She came back grinning from ear-t0-ear, saying, “I want each of you to go back there…I’ve never experienced anything like it.”

Interest aroused, M jumped up saying, “Me first!”  She, too, returned with a Mona Lisa smile, urging me on to my turn.

I entered the restroom with caution, scouting out the lay of the land.  It looked like a typical, spotlessly-clean restaurant bathroom with two stalls.  I chose the first one and peered in. 

The toilet looked normal to me.  Pretty much like the one in this picture.  I Commercial_Toilet_238153139_std could not fathom what, on earth, was the big deal. 

Never one to waste an opportunity, I turned around and sat down.  It was then I realized what the fuss was about—the toilet was heated!  The seat was warm, and there was heat rising from the bowl, like it was filled with hot water.  I must say it was exceedingly comfortable and I can only imagine how wonderful it would be on a winter’s morning.

So, see, you never know what adventure lurks just around your corner!

All-in-all, I’d say it was a great morning!  Great friends, great junk food, and a warm posterior!  C

Three of the most important things in life to be sure. Wonder how they warm that seat... We do have warm water in the bowl (mixing valve so the tank won't sweat), but no warmed seat. And now we all know more about each other than we ever wanted to know! :D

Farmchick said...

This is funny, but it does have me intrigued. I have never used a warm toilet seat before. I now might have to search one out!

I read somewhere recently that they are quite common in Japan. I think it's a great idea!

kath001 said...

Well...their signs do say 'Hot Now'...I guess they don't mean just the doughnuts! :)

Zuzana said...

What an interesting restroom experience;)
And just so you know, the talk of donuts made me crave sweets so much, I made myself a cup of coffee and having a brownie with it.;;

OK... I'm not going to popular here today. I probably have an "issue"...lol... I can never, ever bring myself to sit on a public toilet. I am the master of hovering. Doesn't matter how spotless... AND... The heated seat thing sounds awesome for a home toilet.. but I can't help but thing of all the germs that are breeding in the warm environment of a heated seat.

I know..buzz kill, I should have just shut up, right? :-)

I do love those Krispy Cremes tho.

Well, let me clarify here, even if you are a hoverer and I am too unless they have those paper covers, you would have still have "experienced" the heat because the water in the toilet bowl is hot--the seat itself is not heated. My hubby said the same thing about heat growing bactgeria, but I think this is a sanitizing feature.

Ahhh, nothing quite like a hot Krispy Kreme right out of the....fryer?
My husband loves them so much he swears they're addicting, calls them heroin donuts!
And a heated toilet, now that is service:)

Kathleen From Eggs In My Pocket said...

Happyone :-) said...

That's a new one for me. :-)
The Krispy Creme store here by me just went out of business!! Maybe they didn't have those warm toilet seats!!

Sandra said...

Okay. I have a complaint. When I was there, Krispy Kreme wasn't even suggested as an option! I'll remember that for next time! :)
