Female heating

Being of that age where I suffer from what I like to refer to as my 'personal central heating', I was complaining mildly about it last night, which got Keith into divergent thinking mode.
"What we need," he mused, " is to be able to harness all that heat and put it to good use."
"Really?"
"Oh yes. We could encase women in rubber tubing."
"Yes, that would really help to cool us down," I interrupted sarcastically.
"No," he said, patiently, "The point is to make use of the heat generated. It could be converted into electricity and you could have cold water pumped through the tubing and it would come out at the other end as hot water."
Very green and eco-friendly. I just hope there are no politicians reading this.

Keith's suggestion sounds like something out of science fiction!
Midwife's Muse has written a number of posts on the subject which you may find of interest. xx

I think Keith may have thought about that one a bit too much. Sounds like a pre planned idea he was just waiting for the opportunity to divulge!

Does Keith yet realise that women at this stage of their lives are apt to be a bit homicidal - um, I mean tetchy? LOL!

I refer to that special feeling as 'my own personal summer'.

Wallo, trust me - it was quite spontaneous. :)
Jay, I think he has been a bit 'sheltered' in that respect - me being so continuously calm and peaceful - ALL the time!
