Hot Crotch (or Getting TOO Comfortable @ Work)

I work in a basement with TONS of machines in the next room. It is often hard to get the temperature right down here for whatever reason. But because of this, I am forced to MAKE myself comfortable & warm in various ways because it is often very COLD.

One of my favorite ways to keep warm is to sit indian style in my chair. This only works for a LITTLE while because I'm not as young as I used to be & my legs fall asleep quickly. Sometimes, I am just sitting here pointing & clicking & dragging & dropping. This activity only requires my right hand, which leaves my left hand cold & abandoned on my junky desktop. Because of this... well... I have started placing my hand between my thighs. Not in an even REMOTELY sexual way as it is never NEAR to my nether regions. But it's always toasty there, though. I guess because my thighs are in such close proximity to one another & are arguably the "meatiest" part of my squatty body. The only body parts in closer proximity are my arms & ribcage, but neither of those areas are especially meaty & as such don't appear to retain the same amount of heat. *placing left hand between right arm & ribcage just to see* Nah, not the same.

I don't have company to my sliding doored cubicle very often, but when I do, it is oft times unannounced. Y'all see where I'm going with this, right? Yeah, it poses a bit of a problem when you're chillin with your hand in what appears to be your "crouch" (that's country talk there) and some government bigwig appears at your cubicle unannounced wanting to shake hands & discuss a project. No one wants to touch a hand that appears to have travelled to noman's-land JUST previous to shaking it. And I definitely, don't want to be caught looking like Polly Pervert @ work, but I'll be DAMNED if it's not one of those things I do subconciously. I guess when your job requires very little face to face contact & goes mostly unsupervised, you can indeed get TOO comfortable @ work.

For now I make SURE my cubicle door is pulled ALL the way closed. And make a concious effort to keep BOTH of my hands moving so they stay warm. Perhaps I'll start wearing gloves... :-/

LOL! I do the samething! I've had that habit since I was a little girl- I'm glad to see I'm not the only one! I've always been afraid someone would see me and get the wrong idea, but my hands get really, screw em.
