Jack's Score Card




Jack has a score card. He is keeping points. When the card is full, a spanking is forth coming. What?? I knew nothing about this score card.

We were returning from a morning urban hike. The sun was out, the weather crisp and cold. I was irritable, huffy and not happy. It was just one of those days. Even keeled Jack did not understand and would cut me no slack. Would I like a spanking on a cold bottom? He asked me and told me that was where I was headed. I could count on it. I think I rolled my eyes and sighed.

Then he told me his score card was just about full. Score card? Are we talking golf here? A low score is a golfer's dream. Was Jack talking golf? No, he was NOT talking golf. His score card had nothing to do with golf and everything to do with my bottom.

He told me that he was tallying demerits concerning my disposition. What??  He told me that he had tallied some misbehavior of mine. Let's see: several snarly remarks, several things not completed on the home front, some distancing, some attitude that needs adjusting and a recent eye rolling. Are these things given points?

Yes, said Jack. The number of points were adding up and the score card was just about full. Wait...... I did not know about any score card. Jack had been tallying hatch marks? Really???  Smart remarks are counted up? Attitude is calculated by hatch marks?  How many tally marks for rolling my eyes? I do not know about any of this!

I asked him if I get to see the score card. Jack said there was no fun in that.  He told me he keeps the score card in his mind. Really??? The bottom line he says is my own bottom. Yikes! How will I know when the score card is full? Jack smiles and says, "Oh, you will know. It will be broadcasted all over the bedroom. "

When we got home, Jack did spank me........short, "sweet" and stinging.... He called it an "I love you" spanking with no implements..... just his hand and my bare bottom. That score card had been redeemed and a new clean one was already in place.

Does your husband keep a score card? Does he keep track of the little things until a spanking is due? How do you know when you are getting close to the edge? How do you know when you are crossing the line? Are you camping out on that line? What happens when you go over "the edge"?

  1. I wonder such things myself. I don't know why some things can go on the sly while others have me dragged to my room for a swift judgement so to speak... :)

  2. I don't think it's anything official, but yeah, there's a breaking point or a line in the sand somewhere, for sure! He has his ways of letting me know if I'm getting close to that edge...and we all know what happens when we go over LOL.

  3. Hmmm. I may have to stop showing my husband your posts :). He's already gotten ideas from Jack. In all seriousness the scorecard shows he's paying attention to you.

  5. No scorecard here, he just concocts things I've done on the spur of the moment. In his head? Oh dear, that is omninous.

  7. Yikes, I definitely think that any score cards should be kept on actual pieces of paper, and in plain view for you to see. ;) How else are you to know when to start behaving. hehehe I call going close to crossing the line, line riding, and I've done it at times. ;)

  8. Well Meredith...MM has a "hopper" and when it fills up he has to empty it. It's a very similar concept. Too bad we don't always have fair warning about when the card or hopper are full. :)

  13. I am certain there is no actual score card kept. Like Jack, there is an ongoing tally of offenses being tracked that just magically one day it is decided action needs to take place. Must be a "guy" thing. Just wish I knew when "my card" was approaching full, before the hand falls.
