Work is a little bit crazy at the moment. I'm working longer hours than I've worked in a while, and things are pretty intense. So when Tuesday evening came round, and it was time to meet up with a friend for some play, I seriously considered backing out. I was very, very tired, and I wasn't entirely sure I was in the mood for spanking fun. However, I also know that sometimes when I'm tired, ratty and stressed, a spanking, whether I'm in the mood for it or not, will help me let go of some of that tension and crappiness and put myself in a better frame of mind.
So off I went to meet up with said friend, and some spanking was had, but the thing I realised pretty much as soon as we started was that not only was I tired, ratty and stressed, but my tolerance was way down and I really wasn't in the mood to take very much at all. We played for a while, probably 15 minutes or so, and, if I remember rightly, he used his hand, a ruler, a strap of some sort and a flogger. Possibly not in that order! (Just as an aside, I LOVE floggers. If I had to nominate anything for all time favourite implement it would without doubt be my flogger. Yum.) Anyway, it was pretty clear after that 15 minutes that I was done for the evening. We spent the next hour chatting about the world, kink, everything, which was lovely. I'm glad that I have friends that I can have fun with but also have intelligent conversation with, because, much as I love spanking, conversation makes the world go round.
I'm worried though. Work is not likely to get any less insane before June, which is when the project I'm running is due to finish. Does that mean I'm going to be tired, ratty, stressed, and have no tolerance up until June?! I hope not. I can only cope with the first three if I can have a damn good spanking every once in a while to help me let some of that stress out!
