Back On The Team!

Sweet L. sent this drawing to me and I love it. Jack and I met in high school. He did have a letterman's jacket that he would put around my shoulders. I am that girl right there. Yes, I am short. I have no idea when National Short Girl Appreciation Day is, but today seemed like as good a day as ever! 

I have been a little under the weather with a bad cough. Not good when things are cooking in the kitchen. Jack took over all the cooking for Thanksgiving and I supervised from afar. He made the pies and they were elegant. He actually did the whole dinner with some help from those attending, but not from me. I stood back watching and giving instructions. Several times we had mini- skirmishes and sometimes, he followed my directions and sometimes he just plain ignored me doing it his own way. Dinner was wonderful. I was very impressed and said so. He told him he has taken lessons while observing me cooking away all the time. 

My sweet Jack will not spank me while I am ill. Even a cough will stop all attention to my backside. He commented continually about his score card getting quite full. I would cough, shrug and move on smiling as I went. I really did not give any consideration to the filling up of his score card. 

This morning after my shower, Jack found me. He put his arms around me, and kissed me saying, "You are well enough to be back on the team." I pulled back and he began taking off my robe. I said, "What team?" He said, Team Mischief and it is time to clear the score card. So glad you are well. Let's go".

Over the bed, and away that spanking went with me squealing and Jack brightening my bottom a brilliant red. This man has a knack for remembering the little details that went sideways during my convalescence: sassiness, cheekiness, ignoring his wise remedies, doing things my way, not his. When he brought me up, he said that he loved me freshly spanked. I was rubbing my bottom complaining that he hadn't remembered that it had been a week of coughing and no spanking. He needed to remember that. Wrong thing to say to a husband who likes his wife freshly spanked. Over I went for more as he said he wanted to make sure the score card was truly cleared. 

Peace has been restored. The score card is cleared and Jack's wife is freshly spanked. The pies were delicious, but are long gone. Happy Short Girl Appreciation Day to all of you.

Thanks, L.



  1. I relate on so many levels here (puns intended)...except that I don't get to rub my bottom. Meredith, I'm so glad you're better now. And I'm glad that the scorecard is cleared off and clean. 3GA is the best score to have!

  2. Mere,,,glad you love the photo,,it reminded me of you and Jack so much that I could just see both of you in high school together.


  3. Peace and a warm red bottom after a lovely Thanksgiving!

  4. Meredith,
    So glad you are feeling better! Sounds like there is peace again and all is well. It's funny how they can remember the little things, isn't it? Especially, when we think they have not noticed a little sass here or there. Happy things are back to normal for you.

  5. Hi Meredith, Short girl appreciation day...I love it!

    Sorry you were under the weather but glad you are now feeling better and that the scorecard is settled and peace reigns again. How wonderful of Jack and the others to take over cooking duties :)


  6. Yes! Short girls deserve a day....and to be freshly spanked? Well you just have to smile at all the peace in your home. So glad your feeling better.

  7. Hi Meredith, glad you are better, how nice of Jack to take over in all ways!
    love Jan, xx

  8. Meredith, happy you are better and Jack took over. Love the title.


  9. Dear Short Friend, I do not know much about golf, but I do understand that the lower your score, the better game you played. Obviously you need to work on your game.

    When your scorecard is full, Jack will practice his swing. No wonder that man is such a good golfer.

  11. Happy Shorty Appreciation, Mere! Very glad to hear you are feeling better. Had to laugh when Jack put you back over the bed..when are you gonna learn...ya don't sass when they are still right there with a weapon of m'ass destruction! ;)

    Hugs and blessings...Cat

  12. Ooh, didn't realize this was a holiday! If I know, I'd have celebrated! Glad your scorecard is cleared!

  13. LOL Meredith! :) Look at you, making up a date for a holiday! You crack me up!

    I am very glad that you've been feeling good enough for things to get back to normal around your place. Wouldn't want your score card to overflow- neither would your bottom!

    Very cute pic that L found for you there. I can just imagine you and your Jack, back in those days. Very sweet! Feel good! Many hugs,

    <3 Katie

  14. This one is sweet, Team Mischief reigns again. Glad to hear you're feeling good enough to play those team sports again. They can be hard at times but oh so worth it!!! Stay well.
