I suppose that it is inevitable. Sooner or later we would experience a pandemic. In a way, I’m very glad it waited until now. As little as 20 years ago, most of us wouldn’t be able to work from home. We certainly wouldn’t have the ability to communicate freely with large numbers of people without travel. Thanks to the Internet, satellite TV, and sophisticated, reasonably-priced online shopping sites, we don’t have to leave our homes at all.

Of course, it’s much easier for me than it is for most others because I have my sweet lioness. If I were living alone I’d have cabin fever and be going crazy for want of human contact. I realize that online activities aren’t real substitutes for interaction with live people but it’s a hell of a lot better than it would be if all I had to do was watch the few TV channels I could get on my antenna.

I’m not exactly sure what we’ll end up doing this weekend. I’m writing this post early Saturday afternoon. Mrs. Lion plans to wax part of me. Most likely she will do a full Brazilian. When we were playing the other day, she commented that my butt was getting hairy. She will be waxing that area for sure. I like that myself because staying clean in the shower is easier and feels nicer without all that fur. I’ll let you know how much real estate has been cleared tomorrow.

Friday night I tried generic Viagra. We waited and then by the time it should’ve taken effect I wasn’t in the mood to do anything. I know Mrs. Lion will keep trying. I have a very good supply of pills. I’m not convinced that I need ED meds. I just think there is some other reason my erection was, shall we say, floppy. However, there is nothing wrong with putting some more air in the tires, so to speak.

I haven’t broken any rules for some time now. It’s been well over a week since I had a conversation with a paddle. That’s both good news and bad news. Mostly good news. While I do get turned on thinking about being spanked, lioness 4.0 drives any fun out of it in two or three swats.

I wonder if I’ve really been that good. Have I avoided interrupting her for more than a week? Have I managed to avoid annoying her? I know I’ve remembered my chores and rules. AmI really that well-trained?

Friday night I cooked Mrs. Lion her birthday dinner. It’s the first real cooking I’ve done in a long time. I had some trouble peeling the carrots because I couldn’t really see very well if I removed the peel over the entire carrot. Mrs. Lion helped me. Other than that it went well. I made corned beef and cabbage. I used the same water the corned beef was cooked in to boil the carrots, potatoes, and cabbage. The meat was amazing. The corned beef was perfectly lean. FYI: we got it at Costco.

Actually that wasn’t my first adventure in cooking. I did make beef barley soup with mushrooms. And I also did a batch of beef stew. However, that was weeks ago. It was good to go into my recipe box. I think I’ll try to make some French bread in the next few days. We got a new semipro KitchenAid mixer a few months ago. I tried to make a batch of French bread. The bread was delicious, but the mixer stopped and started on its own while kneading the dough. I returned it to the company and after about a month, they sent me a new one. I haven’t had a chance to see if this one is better.

By the way, there is nothing like having the super-powerful KitchenAid mixer. If you cook at all, it’s a great investment. I replaced the mixing paddle and dough hook with the professional, stainless steel versions. They cost a bit more, but they are a very good investment. The ones that come with the mixer are made of a light metal that’s been painted. The ones you can buy for professional use are NSF certified. That means when you wash them in the dishwasher, they will not carry any contamination back. I got that before the coronavirus outbreak. In light of recent events, I’m very glad I made that investment.

We still have a bunch of toys we haven’t tried yet. There is the cock ring connected by chains to nipple clamps. Actually, we have two of those. The first one was too wimpy. The second one is untested. I think it should be to Mrs. Lion’s liking. Of course, if she likes it, I certainly won’t. Stay tuned.

I’m thinking that we might want to stock up on canned soup and other staples. I’m not convinced the food supply chain could be disrupted by the virus, but it is a possibility. I know the stores remain crowded and people are swarming in to buy hand sanitizer and toilet paper. Odd combination. Toilet paper would be far down on my list of lifesaving purchases needed in a quarantine. People are pretty strange.

That’s the story from our side of the world. More tomorrow.
