Broken Rules

Perhaps your household works without a structure. Go you. The rest of us mortals need to figure out how this thing works. This is a spot for talking about how we create the structure of our various domestic arrangements.

spam_b: Not to spam, or relegate one's self to the lowest dregs of net life, that is the question.
How did you find the board?: Looking up BDSM, came across DD, then TTWD, and Google lit the way.

Thats SO cute! And J...I told my little brother that his blonde hair would turn brown (like everyone else in the family) and he cried. I felt AWFUL. How did they react when you told them their hands would fall off? I would be horrified if my older sister told me my hands would fall off.....

Remember, this is more than 20 years ago, so I can't quite remember how they reacted. They kept asking me for further details on that, and on the goblin dust mines (the entrance to which, I claimed, was behind my bed, and into which they would be pulled, to slave away their lives pounding rocks into dust, if they went into my room without me there to protect them). As I remember it, they liked the stories I told them, and appreciated getting attention from me. As *they* tell it, I have scarred them for life with the horrible stories.

I'd feel guilty, except that I have since heard about far *worse* things that other siblings did, that made the littlest kids far more terrified, and which the youngest ones never laugh about when they're reminiscing. So my theory is, they enjoyed the stories, and knew deep down that I was making things up. Also, they learned a bit of the scientific method, and learned about testing theories for reality. Or something like that. And they've all got their adult hands by now, so hopefully they no longer worry about it. :bunny:

Not exactly on topic, but similar... My mother had me convinced that shopping carts were pulled by invisible horses that only got to go back to "the stable to rest" when they were put in the proper places in the parking lot or at the front of the store. To this day I still feel so guilty if I think about leaving one out, I actually went back and put one away in the rain one time. Not to protect other people's cars, or help out the workers mind you, but to make sure the horse got to rest.

That's a great one! I have many things I want to convince my future children are true, and now I've got one more to add to the list.
