I didn’t realize it, but today is actually the end of our heatwave. We hit 102 yesterday and it’s supposed to be hotter today. Yuck! It’s supposed to be high 70s/low 80s for the rest of the month though. Check back with me in December/January when I’m complaining about the cold.
Despite my warning that I will start enforcing the email rule, I don’t have an email from Lion and it’s past noon. It’s a good thing the air conditioner in the bedroom works very well because I’ll probably work up a sweat whomping him. I’m sure his buns will be on fire when I’m done.
Our old coffee pot died a few weeks ago. We waited a while for a replacement, which was defective. We waited another while for its replacement. In that time, Lion didn’t need to set up the coffee pot. I’m happy to report that he’s been following his rule with the new coffee pot. He even did it on a day he didn’t feel well. I often overlook his rules if he doesn’t feel well. I may be wrong, but it seems too mean to enforce them.
I never asked Lion if he’d rather have me set a timer or not. Just because the timer goes off doesn’t mean I’ll stop swatting, but he’d know how much time had elapsed. Does he like to know? I haven’t decided which way I like better either. I tend to spank until I’m tired or his butt is a lovely shade of ouch.
[Lion — I originally suggested the timer because disciplinary spankings were getting short and shorter. The old, now-defunct Disciplinary Wives Club website proposed a timer set for ten minutes for one offense and adding five minutes for each additional offense. Mrs. Lion agreed to try it. It worked painfully well. When a timer is set, and Mrs. Lion goes at least as long as the setting, the punishment is uniformly severe. Lately, she has not set a timer, and my bottom has been a lot less sore when she finishes.
I think that the timer provides quality control for her spankings. I have to say that when it goes off, and she keeps swatting away, it has a big effect on me. Those extra-inning swats hurt a lot more.]
