The Threat of Discipline
We have a cat. Well, actually the cat lets us live at her house. The Cat's name is Sheba and she has been with Cora longer than any of the men in Cora's relationships. I hope that will change but Sheba has a dozen year head start on me.
Besides having me figured out and often knowing what I will do before I actually do it, Cora knows her cat, too. So after preparing a pot of pasta, Cora set on the counter to cool. Knowing Sheba, Cora covered it so it would be safe from little kitty claws and went off to another room for a minute.
Wrong. Cora heard the cover moving and immediately dropped what she was doing, ran to the kitchen only to find Sheba removing the cover. Naturally this angered Cora.
Of course, we don't use corporal punishment on our beloved pets but sometimes a little discipline (or threat of discipline is needed). In the case of Sheba, a small spray bottle of water works wonders. Usually all that's needed is just to bring it out of the cupboard and make it visible. It always works.
So after this little incident, Cora decided to see what would happen if she 'threatened' me. Cora walked over to her 'Rack' and pulled down the largest paddle. She then turned to me and asked, "What would you do if I threatened you with this?"
Feeling a bit 'playful' I merely dropped my pants and bent over in front of her. There is something special about presenting ones bottom for a little discipline. Naturally, Cora responded with a rather hard swat of that paddle. Then she gave me another one. Ouch! That large paddle packs quite an impact due both to its weight and size.
Mostly that paddle stays on Cora's Rack, probably mostly for 'show'. She does use it but its a rare occurrence. But this time we both had some 'fun' with it although I ended up with quite a sore bottom even from only a couple of swats. But we both had a great laugh over it and quite frankly, I loved being 'threatened' with it. I'm sure Sheba may not have seen the humor in it, though.
One thing for sure: I am sure enjoying being Married to Ms. Cora!!!
