I'm not sure why it's taken me more than a week to write this entry. There was nothing especially severe or terrible about this punishment. Partly I'm embarrassed, but then I've written about far more serious and shaming things here. I guess on some level I had convinced myself that if I just kept delaying I wouldn't really need to write about it.
But eight days later, after some gentle reminders, well, here I go.
Last Saturday I got spanked quite hard for something embarrassingly cliche. As Haron wrote in her entry A Naughty Punished Wife sometime ago, there are certain things that it's almost too stereotypical to be spanked for. Laxness in house cleaning is one Tasha's written about. Not mailing an important check (or "cheque' for our British readers) was Haron's 'wifely' downfall. I supposed I should keep these in mind as I write my version of the typical domestic spanking story.
What for you ask?
For shopping on eBay (no, I'm not putting up a link, good heavens!).
As the six or seven of you who follow my blog know, I've played by myself quite a bit lately with a role play of being a maid. It's sort of fun for me and makes it easier for me to clean, something that isn't usually easy at all. Doing this over the last month or so on my days off has meant that our house has reached something close to being clean and tidy. It's swinging back the other direction now, but still. Anyway, one consequence of my cleaning has been that we've found our storage closets full of things that I intend to be sold on eBay.
I'm not using the word full lightly here either. The closet off our living room, which is almost large enough to be a box room (previous tenants used it as an office) is almost completely filled with stuff as is the guest room / study closet and a good portion of the guest room / study itself.
So bit by bit it's being taken to charity, thrown out or put up on eBay.
But as anyone who has used eBay knows, it's far easier to buy then sell. Especially if, like me, you're almost programmed to search for certain things and find it hard to resist them when you find them at bargain prices.
Anyway, normally this would escape Pablo's notice -- he doesn't much nag me about spending money (I'm sort of frugal by nature) -- I have my own eBay account. Except that he's been helping me with getting auction listings done. And then following them on my account.
Sooo, last Saturday I was barely out of bed when I found myself being spanked quite hard and fast -- so much so I was left gasping -- for buying rather than selling on eBay. And warned in no uncertain terms that ten items better be sold before anything else is bought.
I cried and agreed after first yelling about this being very unfair as we hadn't really discussed this rule beforehand. Apparently logic, always my downfall, should have told me that this was a sell rather than buy month.
And what had I bought you ask?
This makes it so much worse. An ebony hairbrush. It's coming from the UK so it hasn't arrived yet. My bruised bottom is so looking forward to seeing it. Not.
What on earth was I thinking?
