So I got on my soapbox, while Kane listened and watched with amusement ('course, this isn't the first time he's witnessed me doing this). I started spouting some choice expletives in my passionate rant, and my loving husband understood my need to do this. First of all, I would NEVER speak that way to him, and I also would never speak that way to anyone in a REAL conversation. He knew this.
At one point, I shot straight up in bed, arm raised in the air, finger pointing for emphasis, and continued.
Blah blah blah blah......Take THAT, you %&!#*'s. And if you think you're gonna take US down, well you got another thing comin' to ya. &*%^$ you!!!
After I was done, I lay back down. Kane quickly turned me over and started smacking my bottom. It was still dark. I asked him what he was doing. He told me he likes when I am sassy and feisty when I need to be in certain situations, and then said (what he's said before), "as long as you're not sassy and feisty toward me." The man was speaking from past experience -- not recent past experience, mind you, but past experience, nonetheless. And to reiterate, he was speaking of my attitude, not the actual words, because we do not speak that way to each other.
Well, I'm not being sassy and feisty toward you -- you know that.
"I know. And this is a reminder for you not to be."
Oh, so this is a pre-emptive spanking?
Guess there's a first time for everything. And I felt a whole lot better --
1. for having been able to vent and release some pent-up tension
2. having been taken care of by my attentive and caring husband
Hope that made you laugh a bit. We sure did :-P
