Lion always takes an idea and runs with it. Case in point, using the Jail Bird as punishment. I said he’d have to do something really bad for me to want to lock him away. He said I shouldn’t wait for it to be something really bad. I should just lock him up. Then it morphed into punishment after spanking. When he asked for a time frame, I guessed it wouldn’t be more than two or three days. Suddenly that was the sentence. Slow down a bit, Lion.
I do agree that maybe I should use the Jail Bird for lesser offenses to start with. I have no idea what he would do that would piss me off to the extent that I’d lock him away. I may never have an actual use for it. But it makes sense to put him in jail from time to time for smaller infractions.
I hadn’t envisioned it as punishment after a spanking. It was supposed to be its own punishment. I thought the cold steel locking into place would cause some dread similar to a cell door closing in a jail. You’re in for it now, Lion. Solitary confinement. I’m still leaning that way.
As far as the duration is concerned, I think it would depend on why he’s in trouble. If, to start out, he was locked up for eating first then it might not be for more than a day. If he keeps interrupting me over the course of a day or weekend then his sentence might be three days. Or more. It depends on how annoyed I am.
Of course the best advice I can give Lion is to be alert. Watch yourself. Any misstep could land you in jail.
