I was going back and forth as to the title for this blog. Between “The First Trip to the Woodshed in 2021” vs. the title now on the post. The reason the current title won out was due to the unusual request from my husband.
For those of you who follow or have read our blog before, and have read about the infamous trips to the woodshed for Joey, you’ll know that they are not experiences he’s eager to receive.
While he may “ask” for a woodshed whuppin’ by his actions and/or attitude, he has never verbally asked me for one. That is until just the other day, when he came up to me and earnestly asked if I could please find a time that worked for me, to take him to the woodshed.
But there IS a backstory…
The first part of it is that Joey has earned himself a trip to the woodshed. Actually been owed a trip for a little bit. But even in the past, when I’ve told him he is getting taking to the woodshed, he won’t remind me during the times when it would be convenient for me to take him there. He’ll try to fly under the radar, until there are moments when we can’t go to the woodshed, then he’ll act up again. What a brat!
The second part of this back story…an awesome reader of our blog who goes by the moniker “Leathersmith”, reached out to us and thanked us for sharing our lifestyle on our website. As a token of his appreciation, he offered to make and send us a leather punishment strap for Joey’s errant behind. How generous! So I gave him some thoughts about length and basically told him that if it was similar to my razor strap but with a handle, that would be helpful and easier for me to hold when spanking.
Well, Leathersmith recently finished this fine leather art of ass destruction and sent me a video of it before shipping it. OMG it looks amazing and quite ominous! It almost looks like two thick leather razor straps together but with a nice leather handle connecting them at the bottom.
Joey knew the strap was getting made but neither one of us had obviously seen it. So, when I got the video of it, I called Joey over to my computer and showed him the video. His exact words were, “Oh man, what the holy hell is coming my way?” He nervously chucked, walked off, and went about his day. But later that night when we were on the couch and watching TV, in all seriousness he asked me if I could please find time to take care of his woodshed whuppin’ that he has coming. What?! LOL
It didn’t take him long to do that math. He knows that if I wait to spank him until AFTER this strap arrives, then that strap is going to part of his woodshed whuppin’! That strap isn’t even here yet and it is already causing him to worry. I love it!
Initially I actually had every intention to take him to the woodshed before the strap arrived, but I didn’t give him indication that I was going to do so. I just told him that I “might just wait until my new strap arrives.” Just to make him sweat a little bit. I had planned on taking him to the woodshed the Saturday before the Superbowl as we were having some friends over and I figured I’d just take care of his spanking AND have a very well behaved husband for the get together.
So later that Saturday night, I brought down my belt, my black leather punishment strap and the wicked switch. But while watching a movie, I came down with a monster headache and wasn’t up to giving him a full woodshed whuppin’. But much to his chagrin, I did pick up the wicked switch and had him bend over the coffee table at which point I gave him 10 lashes to remind him to behave on Sunday.
The lashes worked like a charm. And normally that would have probably kept him in line for another week or even longer as the marks from the switch last for a few weeks. But he knows that strap is a-comin’ and so he started again with ASKING for his woodshed whuppin’. I asked him why he was so eager to go to the woodshed and he did confess that he was hoping I would take care of it before the strap arrived. I told him that he did realize that even if I DID take him to the woodshed before it arrived, that it would be “on deck” for the next trip to the woodshed. He said he figured as much, but that would be then and this is now. LOL I just love my husband so much.
At that point, I once again planned on accommodating his request and taking him to the woodshed before the strap’s arrival, but then I got an email from Leathersmith with the tracking number and thought…it would be a shame to make that strap have to wait to teach Joey a much needed lesson, after traveling all that way. So with that, I called Joey over and told him, “I decided to go ahead and give you your woodshed whuppin’.” He took a breath but I could see the relief in on his face as he simply stated, “Ok.” Then I continued, “Right AFTER my new strap arrives.” Oh the look on his poor face. I almost felt bad for him. Almost.
He asked when it would arrive and I told him. He gave kind of an accepting grimace and walked away. Saying something about needing to go finish making some Wicked Switches – Side note: We offered to send Leathersmith a Wicked Switch, after Joey made them, as a token of our appreciation for the strap.
Well, last week the strap arrived at our off-site mailbox. I told Joey to find time to drive over and get it. Kind of in the vein of having to go get your own switch, belt or strap for your own whuppin’, I thought.
When he came home, he opened the box and let the strap slide out. And immediately said with a chuckle, “That dude is trying to kill me.” Then he handed the strap to me. Oh. My. Goodness. I felt the weight and flexibility of the leather and just knew right then that this was going to be a butt blistering implement. I decided on its name, “The Wicked Strap” and the corresponding sandals.
It is 24″ long, 2.5″ wide, and each strip is just under 1/4″ thick, so together the thickness is just under half an inch. And get this…it weighs in at 17.7 ozs. Yes! Over a lb of butt blistering, attitude adjusting leather!
We both had a full calendar last week and weekend and for a variety of other reasons, I have set the date for this Thursday, Feb 25th. Plenty of time for him to ponder his comeuppance!
I actually plan on using my belt and maybe another implement before finishing the spanking off with this new strap. Sort of on an exclamation point, if you will. 😉
So…there will be a follow up post coming shortly after Thursday, about his trip to the woodshed and the debut of The Wicked Strap.
UPDATE: New post is up! 1st Trip to the Woodshed in 2021.
