Strike Three...

So there I was on Saturday morning, literally falling out of bed at an hour that any respectable human being will never do. I mean, who in their right mind gets up before 8am on a wintery Saturday morning? Well, apart from me, that is...I had spent a very restless Friday night with the knowledge of a paddling coming up, and the assured fact that I was most likely not going to be able to sit down for a long, long time.



While the rest of South Africa was still snuggled up in their beds, I set off to collect the croissant and cup of coffee for HH. I firmly believe that sucking up to the hand that yields the wood can never hurt anyone...okay, now that was just a bad choice of words. Anyway, arriving at HH's office, I had to find out that the power has still not been restored (okay, this is South Africa - no actual surprise there) and that again there was no option but to postpone the "appointment".


So, I am still in my corner...but I have decided that the one and only baseball rule that I do know, is now going to apply. Strike three - paddle out. Without touching my bottom.

Doesn't So Africa have some law about "cruel and unusual punishment"? 3 cancellations? I think THIS fits the bill! Sara

Raven Red said...

Er...thanks for the support Sara - but the third cancellation has not happened. Not HH's fault - blame the electricity supplier...but hey, it is a way out. (GRIN)

Regarding sucking up to the spanker, I'll quote a top I know. "It won't help, but it can't hurt either." ;-)

bree whispers to Raven...Why was the punishment cancelled because the power is out? I don't get it. It is light out when you arrived. So what exactly is the problem of doing the punishment? I don't understand. Can't you light candles or something if you need more light? Please explain.

Just make sure HH never talks to Bree! :D

bree512, I was wondering exactly the same, but I did not dare to say...

I think he was a bit ambigious there...it will not hurt him, but it will definitely hurt the poor bottom he has gotten hold of...

Bree

Really do not have to whisper...this is South Africa - surrounding basically every building in this country is high walls, and security gates.

No electricity - cannot open gates, unless you set the gates on manual override...and in this country - that is not advisable.
Not if you still want your belongings where you last left them...

HH is a nice guy. Sweet and understanding...er, cannot think of anything else right now - this sucking up thing is more difficult than I thought. GRIN

Scarlet

See answer to Bree...and I will rather not go into how many times I got stuck in my own home, unable to leave, because I could not open gates/doors because of missing electricity supply...

Hugs

Raven we may now proceed :)
HH

PS I have noted the above comments with interest. If the distance between us was not so great, there would certainly be a few other young ladies standing in line for a good spanking!!

Wow! Thanks for educating me Raven. I knew about this, but didn't realize it happened all over Africa. For some reason I thought South Africa was different. My bad.
