No sooner had the Demerit book been expunged of penalty points than I found myself completing a new entry last night. My wife had remembered some stroppy attitude of mine over the weekend and gave me lecture about it over dinner. She told me to enter 10 points in the book.
I joked that stroppy behaviour deserved the strop. She agreed and asked if I meant a razor strop? I said yes, but pointed out that as we do not have one it would have to be a strap.
Later that evening she reminded me that we had talked about having a razor strop before now and she thought she had told me to get one, so I could add another 10 points in the book for disobedience.
This morning there was a text from her which said simply - Buy one, max £30.00 - I knew what she wanted.
I have found quite a wicked looking one on ebay and have taken the plunge. At least it is under budget.
I don't know why but my wife has suddenly taken to discipline in a fresh spirit. Maybe things are good for her at work or her exercise class has filled her with energy.
Whatever it is that has lightened her load, I am getting regular punishment and a fairly constant sore bottom and so am loving it.
Now I had better get that dinner on the go.
