No worries the 30 Days will continue tomorrow (it's already scheduled). Kinda decided to interrupt or break up the action a little...and ease back into more regular blogging...
Last night Daddy and mouse were cuddling a little...and mouse asked him about a collar. Just his thoughts on them.
He said in that flat way of his, "Why? You know you're owned."
Well of course mouse knows that (insert eye roll buried under the covers) -- we can blame it on this 30 days of submission...when mouse has time she's been answering the questions and scheduling them in advance...
It's not cheating really!
A collar is more of a public display of submission, rather like head covering or wearing a burka (maybe). It's very public and easily recognized.
Daddy rather dryly remarked that the butcher might be offended if mouse came in wearing a dog collar. Really?! Who said anything about that?
He wasn't being very helpful. But possibly sensing mouse's frustration he remarked. "I used to favor collars in my youth. I never considered you wearing one since I find them garish; not attractive in the least. You deserve something delicate to grace your neck." Then he added, "You do have the pearls I gave you."
Now mouse never thought about the pearls being anything like a collar -- even if she does wear them daily because Daddy wants her to. Maybe that's more what it's about -- a public display that might not be recognized by anyone else, but mouse is fully aware of.
