Of course such a situation would be fairly unheard of nowadays, but it did make me smirk a bit since I know all too well how that kid must be feeling.
Yesterday we employed a new strategy to ensure that my bottom lasts until the 31st: I put a moisturizing cream on the spot that is most damaged before Rosa started the spanking and she eventually adopted a 'two-on-the-left' for every 'one-on-the-right' cadence to even out the damage. The spanking still stung plenty even with these amendments, and Rosa reminded me that she is not spanking like she typically would.....which I do know AND APPRECIATE! She did say that she has seen my bottom in worse shape and did not seem overly concerned about the effect the repeated spankings have had. Given her tone, I would not be surprised if, as we near the end, she ramps things up again.
