And every now and then, the word "spanking" slips into the conversation. It's popped up a few times, although there might be weeks or months between references.
My favorite hosts have to be the "drive-time divas", Lori and Julia. They've known each other for years, worked together at a different job, then became friends, then became sisters-in-law when Lori married Julia's brother (a firefighter named Ken, interestingly enough) and for the last nine years have hosted The Lori and Julia Show. Needless to say, knowing each other so well, they can needle each other and get under each other's skin like no one else can.
I believe it was this past Monday when Lori went off on a rant on some topic (sorry, I can't remember exactly what it was). When Lori gets going, she's like a dog with a bone--you can't get her away from it. Julia kept trying to move to a new topic, and Lori kept dragging the conversation back to the subject she was wound up about. Julia finally told her to let it go, and if she didn't, "I'm going to spank you!"
I thought this might lead to some spirited and playful back and forth, but to my complete and utter amazement, it didn't bring forth one single comment--not from Lori, nor from the other on-air personality of the show, producer Donnie Love. I was happy for the brief reference, but disappointed that it wasn't followed up.
And then there were a few brief comments yesterday. This time, the subject was jeggings.
Julia was discussing a certain brand--once again, sorry, I don't remember the name--and opined that they were very much like Spanx in the way they compress and hold everything in. She also said that you had to think about possible bathroom breaks, because they weren't all that easy to slip on and off. Lori added, "And you have to hope no one hurts their hand when they slap you on the bottom."
Julia laughed, and Lori continued, "That's what I always say to my husband when he slaps me on the bottom, 'Did you hurt your hand'?"
Now, as every spanko out there knows, that's a cute but bratty thing to say to someone who just smacked your bum. And it pretty much guarantees that it's going to get slapped agin.....and again....and again....
Ah, the drive-time divas. Gotta love 'em!
