A Word From Blue
Back in July, my good friend Molly Rose had a post with a series of questions meant to get to know others better. Both Molly Rose and her fiance Jack completed the questions, and I know Riley and her guy, Cael did too. Also, Rosie and Mr Bossy. If you haven't read those, just click on their names and go check it out. It's very interesting hearing about how others got started in this lifestyle. At least, I think so. I answered the questions myself too.
I didn't even try to get Blue to participate then, but we had a lot of time this weekend. That doesn't happen too often unfortunately. Anyway, he indulged me and answered the questions. I faithfully transcribed his responses here. As it turns out, it's a little embarrassing to read about yourself in a format like this. I wish we had done it as a couple like the others, but I guess better late than never? I thought maybe you would enjoy getting to know Blue a little better, so I guess I'll just grin and bear it. :)
1. How did you very first learn about DD, and what was your initial reaction to the concept?
I knew something was up before I ever heard the words Domestic Discipline. My wife, you know her as Cowgirl, had changed a lot in the way she handled herself. I did love the changes. One night she brought the subject up. I could tell that this was something important to her, so I listened and tried to keep an open mind. I hope I don't offend anyone when I say, I thought it was too weird for my tastes. I couldn't understand why a grown woman would want to be treated like a child. I know now it isn't like that at all. I want to add that I wasn't a bit surprised at the name my wife gave herself. It fits her to a T.
2. Share one of your all-time favorite DD memories of you and your partner.
I know my Cowgirl wrote about the whole standing in the corner thing. What you may not understand is that Cowgirl giving herself permission to cry is a pretty rare thing. Her crying on my shoulder that day is something I'll never forget. Not much else to say there...
3. What is one aspect of DD that you feel your partner has always handled very well?
Cowgirl is quick to own up to her mistakes and I like that. She never tries to get out of a punishment even when she knows it will be a strong one.
4. If you had to pick one person in your life to tell that you practice DD, who would you tell?
I would tell my Dad. He's of a generation where men were men and no apologies for it. My parents have a marriage that closely follows DD principles anyway. If there's spanking involved there, I don't even want to know about it!
5. What is one thing you wish you had known when you started DD?
Spanking my wife to punish her is the hardest thing I've ever done. It hurts me more than her I think. I hate seeing her in pain of any kind. I can't argue with the results though, so I will do it when I have to. The day I saw her driving like a Nascar driver, her words, took about 5 years off my life. I was glad I still had some work to do before I could get home. I needed that time to settle myself down to deal with her.
6. (I added this question of my own) So, how do you make your hand feel like a 5 pound brick? You
shouldn't be able to do that!!
Come here and I'll show you! (laughing)
Blue never did get around to showing me that hand trick of his. He showed me lots of others though. I do love that man! Thanks again Molly Rose for the questions. Maybe we can get a few more people to participate....I promise, I'll pass along any comments you may have to Blue.
