Saving My Own Bacon!




If I am honest, I would declare that bacon is the most perfect food. Yes, it has problems..... lots of fat, those televised hog lagoons in flooded North Carolina! Nonetheless, a little bacon goes a long way. Delicious! 

Saving your bacon is a great figure of speech. Think skin of your teeth! Let me explain. I saved my very own bacon for sure. 

September has been a dicey month. Many things going on........ people visiting, going places and finishing a few big home projects, workers all over the place and new furniture arriving all took time. In fact, I developed a small back injury that needs time to heal. Ugh! Ttwd...... the spanking part was put on hold as I heal. My submission sometimes was nowhere to be seen.  I am on the mend, but have been told by both my husband and my doctor that patience is needed. Patience is not something I have. Consequently, we have had a few problems. We have had a few big flare-ups and yesterday comes quickly to mind. Jack is keeping his darn scorecard, but moments like yesterday are becoming more frequent. 

We were at a giant store doing errands with guests arriving at our home for lunch within the hour. Jack took care of groceries and went to the right when we walked in. I went to the left to look for travel luggage tags for our new luggage. I asked a clerk and was told that the travel section was at the very far end of the store. I called Jack telling him I was at the very back of the store and all the way to the outside garden section. I decided on what I wanted and was starting my walk back to check-out. Jack called telling me to hurry as I was keeping the check-out line waiting. I asked why was that. He said he started through the check-out without me. What??? 
He said I was holding up the line. "Why did you start without me", I ask. The image I will always remember is my Jack waiting in the empty check-out line area with his hand on his hip, and his toe tapping. He said he saw the scowl on my face and my hand on my hip. Not a good combo here. 

The people waiting parted and I handed what I wanted to buy to the cashier who made the sale. The walk to the car was dicey and very quiet. In the car, his hand slapped my leg and he said that I came close to getting spanked right there near aisle 3. He said that the only reason I was not being spanked once home was because of my lower back (not that lower back) situation. I fumed saying that he should not have started checking out without me. He said enough. The reason he was upset was my scowl and my attitude. I apologized and was quiet. 

We must have made the pair........ my scowl and attitude and his tapping toe and hand on hip! We must have made quite a pair! Once home, we decided it was all over, but he did gather me in his arms and gave me a few big wallops for good measure careful making his aim far away from my right side. We are both getting grouchy having to keep things in check. 

When spanking is not possible, the playful and the disciplinary, things get twisted around quickly. It is such a part of our lives that once in bed last night, Jack carefully pulled me close saying he was so ready to spank the daylights right out of me and the scorecard was overflowing. A kiss and some brief caresses, and we were in dreamland. 

Have you ever saved your own bacon?

  1. Meredith,
    While I do not want you to get in trouble from your Jack in any way, I DO love this story! I was laughing from the beginning. The imagery you paint is quite funny, but it won't be funny when it is time to even up that score card! Oh, and I love bacon and mine gets saved from lack of privacy all the time I am sure! Great post! What fun! Hugs! Windy P.S. Glad to see your IT department finally got their stuff together.

  2. Meredith,

    Well, it sounds like a great September (minus the back injury, you really shouldn't do that, it hurts!:)) unfortunately, I haven't learned how to save my bacon yet! I just seem to dig holes deep enough that I can't get out of! Ah well, life is a learning experience!

  3. So you know that as the book says..... the fat myth was and is s big FAT LIE. Fat doesn’t make us fat.
    So your BACON is safe! Unless you are cheeky!
    Then all bacon bets are off!
    Hope you guys are able to settle up soon!

  4. This story had me smiling away, its just all too familiar. Sorry to hear about your injury, it did save you this time but as we all know....it will catch up with you. It sounds like Jack’s steel trap mind is working over time!
    Take it easy!

      Jack, relaxing that steel trap mind, let me hold that thought.

  5. Bacon is a reason to live! I can just picture the toe tapping and the scowling....you are mighty feisty these days, but then when you are all healed, peace will be restored. All will be well in the land of Meredith and Jack!

  6. My bacon is never in jeopardy - but I do love the store image of the two of you, I can see it. (And he shouldn't have started checking out until you got there. Or at least until he saw that you were close.)

  8. Hi Meredith,

    Sorry to hear about the back injury and hope it heals quickly. I love how you told this, I could just about picture the scene in the store.

    Things can easily get dicey when spanking isn't an option. Just try not to add any more to the scorecard!

    Hugs

  9. I'm not sure you saved your bacon, Meredith ... just postponed it's demise :)) ... I'm sorry to hear you are suffering with a sore back .. never fun those back injuries. Get better soon! ... I'll look forward to the story of your full recovery and Jacks settling of the overflowing scorecard ... I think in the meantime you best be showing the submissive behaviour Jack expects in order to keep peace in the valley! ;)) ... nj ... xx
