Today's snippet comes from Legal Briefs: Over The Knee Justice which is composed of two short stories and a novella. This excerpt is from one of the short stories entitled Judge Not: Class Reunion. When Eileen, who is both competitive and a snob, is invited to her class reunion she attempts to make over her regular guy husband, Jimmy for the event. Eventually Jimmy gets fed up.
In this scene, Jimmy has taken Eileen into the janitor's closet at her old school. She thinks it's for some naughty fun, so she's quite surprised when she ends up over Jimmy's knee.
“Are you nuts?”
He ignored her and continued with his corrective measures. “But, I am still the man in this family and I will not tolerate your disrespect.” As he spoke, his confidence grew, along with the red glow of his wife’s behind.
“I put up with your pretentious ways, thinking that it didn’t apply to me,” he said, “but over the last couple of weeks, I can see that this reunion has brought out the worst in you.”
“This one is for calling me ‘James,’” Jimmy said, with a hard whack to the center of her butt.
“And this one,” he added as he continued to redden the sweet spot in the center of her rear, “is for telling me what to wear.”
The list, and the whacks, continued. “Insulting my car. Exaggerating about my job. Not letting me have a beer.”
