I have been a wife and mother for over twenty years. Now I am becoming my husband's lover, too.
We owe it all to my fellow bloggers who gave me the courage to come out to my husband as a spanko.
I do feel like this is a New Beginning for us.

TBT - Spicing things up

I told you yesterday that I was babysitting Mollie's cat and puppy while she flies off to the other side of the country. She's all grown up now and quite independent when the mood strikes her. Nick and I love our empty nest now that the children have flow the coop - but as you can see here there was a time when Mollie was all up in my business. I first posted this in December, 2006.


I listen to people out here.  Really I do, so after reading Tiggr and Theresa and a few other places I just decided that I would get some ginger root when I was at the store.  Mollie was with me but what
does she know about cooking, except that I don’t do it? She asked me what in the world it was and I just told her it was a spice.  I wrapped it up and stuck it in the fridge.  I hadn’t given it any more thought than that.  I didn't know if I was going to try it, I didn’t know if I was going to tell Nick I had gotten it.  It was just there, wrapped up and tucked in the back of the crisper drawer, and then forgotten.

Last night I was sitting quietly blogging away. Nick and Mollie were in the kitchen when Mollie shouts to me, “Mom your ginger root is still in here what are you planning to do with it?”  Well to
me it sounded like “Mom you left your dildo on the counter in here, do you want it”.  

Now if you have been reading here you know I am pretty good at thinking on my feet fending off Mollie’s questions.  But my mind was totally numb.  I knew I was blushing, I could feel it, but I was trying not to burst out laughing!  Unfortunately trying unsuccessfully to hold it back caused it to burst out more like a sob and Mollie ran in to see why I was crying.  Of course I was laughing so hard that tears were running down my face. She wanted to know what could possible be so funny.  I couldn’t come up with a thing. I just kept laughing and shook my head at her, which of course made her mad.

I really need to remember what Bonnie tried to say in one of her posts.  A belt or hair brush on the couch is not a dead give away to the average vanilla person.  I am sure some people cook with ginger.  But I’m not some people!  Would anyone out there be interested in a teenage?  We could work out some kinda time share maybe.  Think about it and let me know.

  1. Hi PK, lol, I loved this. Funny how we think everyone will see things through our kinky eyes lol. Did Nick get the hint though. Never experimented with ginger, though I do love eating it LoL. Ginger loaf, ginger crunch...

  2. Perhaps there was something to that old adage, "Children should be seen and not heard," but I have always enjoyed inquisitive children. How funny! No wonder you laughed.

    1. I don't know which is harder on TTWD, little kids or teens. Neither make it easy.

  4. PK,
    I agree with Abby. I do not remember this post. However, I do remember discussing this very subject with you in deep, warm water.

  5. That must have been really funny. Did Nick know what it was for? I've bought ginger for years to use in Chinese cooking and a cookie recipe I have, (long before I tried it for anything else), so no one would think a thing about it. Implements, on the other hand, might cause quite a stir!

    1. I've never used it in cooking. Nick knew exactly why I'd bought it. He read all the blogs I did back then. We have to be careful now because we are so comfortable with our implements we've forgotten to put a few away.

    1. You can go back and 'refresh' it to a later time. This was more important back when twenty or more of us posted each day. Sometimes your post might get lost in the crowd so I got used to going back and moving it back to the top so more would see it.

    1. Hey Heidi, glad you stopped by. It's called figging if you want to google it. It's like a very hot butt plug. Not for everyone, but it's interesting.
