Hey Travis, somehow my message & your reply got buried in archives & there it has no way to reply, so here's another start over.
First the CNN special last night was an hour & thought it was good. Sad in away to hear tales of bullying. Found out there will be a continuing segment each evening all this week. If folks allow tv & doesn't interfere with studies or homework, you might want to check it out on AC-360 program. Sounds like they might do the hour replay next weekend too.
So this was your first time to get swats at school for a smarting-off mouth?? Guess the previous ones then in K-8 were other violations. Always have a male teacher/princial that did the swats or a few females too?
We didn't have any firm phrase for a visit to the office, but some guys would say growing up I recall it was "The Trip" or "The Walk". The time mom said I threatened her & dad took me to our basement for a strap whipping, he said something like--we're taking a trip to the basement. It was to intimidate me a little I think to freak me some that it was going to be a WORST tanning. When your dad has shared stories of his boyhood spankings, he say he got another at home if paddled at school?? In your opinion, is it better at your age to bend over like done at school or over the lap as your dad does your paddlings?
When we 3 reported after school as instructed, the paddle was already out & lying there for 'action' when we got there & he picked it up toward the tail end of our chew out. I was #2 of the 3 of us to assume position. I too thought---this can't be happening!! In another weird way, I wanted it to happen I guess cause other guys I knew had gotten swats at school & I wondered what it felt like--I sure found out. All 3 of us had a big red patch dead center & lower butt cheeks. No welts but small ringlets where holes in paddle bit us. The damage check was just a guys thing routine. I did a subtle rub taking out my billfold & comb to bend over & for sure after.
When you & dad talked after dinner, you said it was in the bedroom--your parents' room or your room?
The prickly heat feeling made briefs stick to skin & jeans just rubbed in general the surface. It was more reaching back to pull jeans & shorts away from skin than a rub. I was some uncomfortable sitting at the table but didn't squirm or wince or give any indications cause I didn't want any questions ask as to why!! No never did tell folks.
Gotta go for now Travis. Hope your week stays cool dude
