Here it is in a nutshell: Newton was right. An object at rest will remain at rest unless acted upon by another object. Of course, that’s only part of the law, but it’s the part that applies to me most of all. It takes tremendous energy to get me moving. One reason male chastity was a good idea for us was our agreement that I’d unlock Lion at least every other night to tease him. It forced me to do something. Lately, that’s been an issue.
I think I burned out somewhere during the pandemic, and I never fully recovered. Any amount of stress forces me underground. Between my trip and the dog being sick, I’ve had less time to do more things. I want to sit in the corner and play with my toes. Things are also complicated by Lion snoozing. I know he says I can wake him up, but he also needs that sleep. Why else would he be sleeping?
Yesterday, I left work early so we could run some errands. We stopped to pick up a strap to tie Lion to the spanking bench, and then we made a half-hour drive to pick up the dog’s medicine. On the way back, we picked up dinner. Lion snoozed a bit after dinner, and he was still snoozing after my shower. By the time he woke up, I was tired. We didn’t do anything other than watch TV. We remained at rest.
If I was smarter/more energetic, I should have yanked the blankets off of him and told him to get on the damn bench so that I could whomp him. So what if he was snoozing. I said I was going to give him a just because spanking to test out the bench. Dammit! But I’m too nice. I decided he needed sleep. I need to grow a pair.
I’m not saying I want to lock him back in the cage. I don’t think we need to be that extreme. Lion may or may not like the idea, but I do not. But I need to figure out some way to prod me into action. What if I wake Lion only to find him groggy and not wanting to play anyway? Then I’ve just interrupted a nice nap for nothing. Maybe I should drag out the bench when I get home and whomp him first thing. That way, he can be recovering while I make and eat dinner and take my shower. If he’s sleeping when I get out of the shower, he’ll miss out on the play, but that will be on him. I can’t solve all the problems. He has to help.
Now all I have to do is work on the second part of Newton’s law: An object in motion will remain in motion unless acted upon by another object.
