Sometimes it seems like I'm a magnet for anything spanking related. It's almost as if the universe conspires to put "spanking" in my way. Consider this day last weeK:
I was setting up to record a television program later that night. When I turned on the TV, I happened to catch a few minutes of the new CBS show, The Talk. I get there just as they're going to a commercial. Leah Remini and Sharon Osbourne get up out of their chairs and give each other a big hug. As they're hugging, Leah drops her right hand down and gives Sharon's bottom 3 or 4 friendly smacks. Sharon doesn't seem to mind.
Later that day, I'm at work. I'm listening to one of my favorite stations here in Minnesota, MyTalk 107.1 FM--the station I've referred to in other posts as Radio Spanko. I've given it that nickname because one of the talk show hosts--Lori of "The Lori and Julia Show" (also referred to as "Lo-J"--has on many occasions made a spanking reference. I don't know if she's a full-fledged Olympic Free-style spanko herself or if she just likes to wade in the pool every now and then, but she does seem to know a thing or two about the subject.
The topic, it seems, is the baseball playoffs, which seems a very odd choice for their show until I realize that the real topic is, "The 3 hottest players in the playoffs". Lori and Julia both have their own lists, and they seem to agree on most of the players picked, but Julia disagreed with one of Lori's choices. I have no idea what player they were talking about, but Julia seemed put off by his red hair and beard.
Lori stuck to her guns, though, saying, "That's his 'hillbilly hotness'." She then added, "He'll buy you a six=pack and give you a spanking."
Julia must have been pre-occupied because the comment almost slipped past her. Something clicked in, though, as she asked, "What did you say? 'He'll buy you a six=pack and spank your bottom'?"
Lori repeated, "He'll buy you a six-pack and give you a spanking." Then she laughed.
You could almost hear Julia rolling her eyes as she said, "Oh.....my......gawd....."
Late at night, I'm back home and flipping through the TV channels. I settled on the end of an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians entitled, "Kris 'The Cougar' Jenner". I have no idea what happened in the episode, but at the end, they're having a family game night. Kourtney makes some kind of a commotion about something, and Khloe pulls her face down on the sofa and starts spanking her bottom with some comment about "10,000 smacks". Kim joins in using one of the pieces of the game to help smack Kourtney.
And then, on a commercial break, there is an ad for a new TV show called Rock Star Wives. Sure enough, one of the rock stars has his wife over his shoulder and he's lightly smacking her bottom.
For a lot of people, the odd smacks here and there fly under their radar and they give them no special attention. As a life-long Spanko, I'm probably somewhat hyper-aware of such incidents, making it sometime seem like there's a spanking reference everywhere I go and everywhere I look. Call me lucky, I guess.....and I hope that luck doesn't change any time soon!
