Safe so far...............

Whew! Britain didn't win any medals today! But I have to tell you - setting up this wagering system has had some interesting effects.......

The TV has been on all day, tuned to the Games. Hubby, who never watches this kind of stuff, has been glued to the set any time England is competing. We also don't mention spanking in the usual course of conversation. Well, today it has been the main topic! He has had great fun telling me, 'Your butt has just been saved! England just got knocked out of the running for a medal in (name of event here)'. He is also highly amused by my style of cheering for the athletes. Usually, I'm yelling at the TV, 'Go USA!'. Now, it's 'Go anybody but England!'. Earlier, he was even talking to the TV, telling the British team to 'Get motivated, boys!' We have a chart made up so we can keep track of any medals that England wins and check off that I have paid my 'penalty'.

So we are definitely having fun. He is actually enjoying the Olympics and there is a lot of teasing and threatening going on regarding what my butt is in for. It's really been an icebreaker.

I just read your two post to my husband, who got a laugh out of it. He went on to say that it is too bad we are both cheering for Canada. However, he suggested we do this for horse racing, which he is heavily into mostly on the computer. If my horse wins I'm O.K., but if my horse loses I get spanked. I am going to have to think about this. I don't think I will be reading him anymore posts for awhile. I just got my first really hard spanking tonight for messing up the computer, and putting him behind in his computer racing. I am hurting as I am typing this.
