Today's topic is simple and, surprisingly, one that I don't recall doing before, at least not as a stand-alone topic.
Lying. Specifically, have you ever lied to avoid a spanking? How about lying to her about whether you obeyed a rule she set?
This topic hit close to home for me a few weeks ago. There was a personal behavior issue on my part she was making some effort to address. Which is great, because as we have tried to move into a real FLR, something more than just disciplining me for bad acts, she has sometimes struggled to be very directive about what she wants. This time, she gave me a direct order, setting a limit on my behavior. But, complying would have meant interrupting something I wanted to do. Worse yet, I had already exceeded the limit she had given me. So, I ignored the order, while simultaneously lying about the behavior. That is always a dangerous thing, but like many personal behavior issues, our spouse's ability to detect non-compliance may be limited. But, wives often have their ways.
Now, ultimately, I did do the right thing. One way my wife "finds shit out" is via a journal I started keeping a year or so ago. In this case, after hemming and hawing with my own conscience for a while, I finally owned up to things in a journal entry. It was a very hard thing to make myself do, because it sucks owning up to it when you have done something wrong; sucks more to own up to it after you have lied about doing something wrong; and sucks even more when you know that owning up to it will and should result in one or more hard spankings.
I also wanted to both address one comment from last week and, in the process, try to reinvigorate one feature of this blog -- the Guestbook. Anonymous left a long series of topic questions. Originally, I thought about just using them all as a topic this week, basically allowing everyone to give a global "summing up" of their DD relationship of sorts. But, upon review, many of the individual topics were things we have not only done before, but done often and recently. It occurred to me, however, that some of these might make good ongoing prompts for the Guestbook. What is the Guestbook, many of you may ask? If you look at the top of the blog, under the title and introductory blurb there is a strip of buttons with links to certain features, one of which is the Guestbook. As originally envisioned, it was a place for people to drop by and tell something about themselves, while not being bound by a weekly topic. That is still really the vision, but the plain fact is the thing has just never caught on. Which is unfortunate, because there was a Guestbook feature on the Disciplinary Wives Club website that I really enjoyed, particularly when I was just starting out in DD and wanted to get all the information I could from people who were really practicing this lifestyle. I'm not quite sure why the one on this blog has never gotten much activity, particularly given that we get about 1,000 page views a day, but I will try to give it another try. If you feel like telling everyone something about yourself, something that doesn't necessarily address the weekly topic, please consider stopping by the Guestbook, with its new set of prompts.
Have a great week.
