Warm air on the tummy

I do like the products of baking.  I finally managed to get a good handle on my bread recipe and can crank out respectable looking loaves of bread unlike the flat, thick loaves I used to be stuck with.  The food that comes out of the oven is great but the other products are wonderful too, particularly the warm tummy air.  After getting a loaf of bread out of the oven I crack open the oven door about ten centimeters so that the hot air comes flowing out of it and pours upwards and then I stand next to the oven and pull my shirt outwards so the hot air flows right up past me under my shirt.  It is almost like sitting next to a roaring fire, minus the flickering light and popping you actually get from a fireplace.  Am I the only one who relishes a warm column of air from the stove on my tummy on a cold winter's day?
