TTWD is pretty new for me - I've been thinking about it, attracted to the idea, for a long time, but was put off it for a variety of reasons. However, my boyfriend and I eventually decided to implement it and I'm on day 2 under the new rules. Last night I burnt a pot of rice. I was chatting with my housemates and not focusing on what I was cooking and the water boiled off. The rice was black. The pot was black. The smoke went through the whole kitchen, and it stank. When I threw the rice away, my eyes stung from the smoke. The pot hissed when I poured cold water on it. (Scene setting - it was VERY VERY VERY burnt.) I salvaged the pot by heating washing powder for about 2 hours and scrubbing it out, and my housemates forgave me for smoking out their kitchen. So all's well, yes?
Well, not really. This is where I would normally start reliving the situation, so that this time in my head I didn't burn my dinner and put a pot out of action for the night, this time I wasn't so careless, etc.... And good heavens all this for the sake of a hundred grams of rice. I didn't say I was logical. However, a pot of rice has the potential to ruin my night apparently. But instead, I texted the chief, and asked for a spanking. And then I forgot about it.
Spanking is coming on Friday morning. I've never felt better about future pain
