Is it ironic that I would have gladly whomped my ex for pissing me off, but I can’t seem to do it with Lion? I assume that’s because Lion treats me with respect and my ex was just an ass. Lion’s interrupting in no way reaches the level of annoyance I felt with my ex. I think that’s a good thing overall. Not so much when we factor in domestic discipline.
Does that mean Lion has to become an ass to warrant a spanking for annoying me? I sure hope not. I don’t even know if he’d be able to do it. He does give waiters and fast food workers grief, and I bet sometimes they’d relish the idea of smacking him around, but I don’t think he could be mean to me. I know I get frustrated by having to do most of the chores around the house, but that’s not Lion’s fault. If he were deliberately sitting on his ass, not helping, that would be a different story. I would definitely be able to whomp him then.
Do I have to turn into a complete bitch to be able to punish him for pissing me off? I’m not sure I can do that. I love him too much to disrespect him that way. I’m sure he doesn’t want to be married to a bitch. That would probably change his opinion of me, and I do not want that.
Unfortunately, I think we’re stuck where we are right now. I’m still trying, and maybe I’ll get it eventually. It took me a long time to be able to punish him as effectively as I do now. It took me even longer to build up the almost imperceptible swats to bun-reddening swats. I don’t know what to do to hasten the process. Maybe I could tell him he pissed me off when I’m doing “just because spanking”. That might be a way to get my foot in the door. I’ll have to see if he annoys me between now and Thursday.
That’s all there is to it. “All I have to do” is spank him for annoying me. Done. What am I waiting for?
[Lion — This is a tough topic. Mrs. Lion doesn’t see herself as a bitch if she spanks me for not setting up the coffee pot. How is that different from interrupting her? I’ve agreed that I am to be punished for both offenses. I’m being a little facetious. I understand that it is very hard for her to punish me for doing something that she perceives as wrong. It’s much easier to deal with the coffee pot. It either is or isn’t set up. Interrupting her is the way she perceives my action. I think it may be that she doesn’t entirely trust her own assessment of subjective situations. I trust them and willingly accept punishment even if she isn’t totally sure she is right to spank me for a particular offense.]
