Not sure how many people will be stopping by today but hello to those of you who do. It's a shopping frenzy here in the good ole' USA, the countdown to Christmas. How are you doing with yours? I am 2/3 of the way finished, the hardest ones yet to go, of course.
Today, I'm featuring The Look of Love. It's a story of a 30+ year marriage and how they manage to keep their love alive and fresh.
In this scene Erica and Scott have recently returned from their cruise just before Christmas. Their Christmas party went off without a hitch, and before they knew it, Christmas Eve was upon them. Scott always dressed as Santa Claus for the grand kids and they were sitting around with Jack reading “Twas the Night Before Christmas” when the children heard a noise in the front room and there was Santa Claus. He had years of practice because he used to do it for their children and now their grandchildren, the circle of life, Erica thought to herself as she watched the children climb onto his lap. Once each of the children received a present, Santa would tell them he had to be on his rounds and Jack and June and Susan and Brad took the children home to get some sleep before they would be up bright and early to see what else Santa left for him.
Once the kids left for the evening, they had their own Christmas Eve ritual, a role play they carried out year after year. Scott would continue his role as Santa Claus and Erica the naughty little girl who needed a spanking. They walked upstairs, Scott’s hand on Erica’s back.
"So tell me have you been a naughty girl.”
“Not me, Santa. You must have me confused with someone else.”
“Erica, no fibbing now.”
“Okay, I might have been a little naughty.”
“You know what happens to naughty children don’t you. They get their panties taken down and put across my knee for a good spanking.”
“Oh, Santa. Please I don’t need a spanking, I promise to be good.”
You think you know what happens now, don't you?
