I anticipated that she would be stressed and thought I'd present her with one of our 'Requests for Discipline' slips. I filled one out and left it on her pillow on Sunday morning. I was sure that a little spanking 'play' would help.
Well, it turned out the rest of the day Sunday just produced more stress. When things finally came to a conclusion at about 4PM, we adjourned to our deck and enjoyed our 'cocktail hour'. The conversation was wonderful and Cora was able to 'download' lots of stuff that had built up. Being able to communicate is one of the most beautiful parts of our relationship.
I have been working on finishing up a couple of 'Spencer' paddles over the past week. These were copies of the Nu-West/Leda paddles that I had purchased over 15 years ago. One of the 'original' sits proudly on 'Cora's Rack' and its one of our favorites. I decided to try a different finish on these two: Shellac. Its an interesting finish and I applied about 5 coats, sanding between each coat. Once the last coat was dry and sanded, I decided to apply some paste wax to finish it.
It was during our conversation on the deck that I was applying the wax. I spent considerable effort with the polish rag and the result was a nice velvet finish. I handed it to Cora who admired the smooth finish. "Would you like to take it for a test drive?", I asked. "Sure", she replied.

"I want to compare your paddle with the original", Cora soon stated. She pulled the original off her Rack and started paddling me with it. It felt about the same. After all, the new one was designed to be a copy of the original. The new one does weigh about 1/2 ounce more (7 oz versus about 7-1/2 oz for the new one). However, Cora found that the new one had a better 'balance'. She continued to compare them back and fourth. I was getting a very thorough paddling.
Soon, Cora decided she wanted to continue paddling me but on the bare bottom. Quickly, my pants were puddled around my feet on the floor and Cora continued her comparison.
By this time I was 'warmed up' with the protection of my pants but now I was fully exposed. She continued with an intense paddling. It was burning like everything but I have to admit that I was enjoying it, too. It was a combination of seeing her smile, not holding back and entering the 'zone'. Wow!

Finally she stopped and exclaimed, "Oh, that felt so good. I feel like I have unloaded lots of stress." And I am so happy that she receives such pleasure in paddling me.
