It's been a long time since I've earned a real punishment. Sure, I've been smacked and scolded; I've mouthed off and stuck out my tongue; I've transgressed minor rules and even gotten hairbrushed a little. But a real, serious, big-time punishment? It's been a while.
So when I got a text message from M on Monday, I was nervous. The text said, "When you get home you are to change into your plaid skirt and a white shirt and wait for me." Gulp. Wouldn't you have been a little nervous?
