Smokey, Ben, Jack And Fire Prevention
A crazy title about three great men, Smokey the Bear, Benjamin Franklin and Jack! What does Jack share with this two guys? Jack is a lover of prevention. He likes to take care of things. He is a problem solver. Taking care of his health and mine, saving money for a rainy day, having supplies of the things we need available, filling gas tanks in both cars always, plenty of travel plans in the works....... He also believes strongly in preventative spankings for keeping things peaceful, calm and serene. Jack likes it because it works. Prevention works for us. He likes the results and the benefits.
Smokey is part of our American folklore. He is right up there with Johnny Appleseed and Paul Bunyan. I love American history and I am in awe of those leaders who stepped up to lead. Take one of my favorite Americans, Benjamin Franklin. Interesting fact about Mr. Franklin is that he is the only American pictured on our green bills who was not a President. This reflects the great reverence we have for him. After all, he is on my very favorite money!
As Mr. Ben Franklin so eloquently stated, " An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure". A wise man, he was. When Mr. Franklin coined this saying, he was referring to fire safety in colonial Philadelphia. He believed so strongly in fire prevention, he organized the very first fire department in the colonies. Now I am using this saying in regarding to the fire safety of my bottom, as in my bottom is on fire! Ben Franklin, help! Mr. Franklin believed that prevention was by far better than the cure. Just like Mr. Franklin, Jack believes in prevention. He spanks to prevent any spankable offense from happening and a cure needed. Spank first and there is no need for a cure!
Preventative spankings help smooth things out. Stress is relieved. Calmness is assured. Happiness is all over Jack's face and our world is looking good. Let a little sass in, watch a little disagreement accelerate, walk away during a mini lecture and things are heading for a real fire storm. So Jack spanks and things are set right between us. Good girl spankings are great preventative tool.
I thank Mr. Franklin, for putting forth the idea that prevention is far better than a cure. I would much rather be spanked in a preventative way than after I made a mistake that resulted in my backside being set ablaze. It sure works here. Jack and Mr. Franklin are men who believe in taking care of business before any reason to do so. Never did I think this great American would find his way into our ttwd sessions.
Do you do preventative spankings at your house? It sure works here.
So a big shout out to three great Americans, Smokey, Mr. Franklin and my Jack.
