Before mouse wanders too far into this topic, provided to mouse by Daddy, just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for all the comments of support! Will be replying individually but just needed to give a collective shoulder bump to all. The support meant so much to mouse -- more than her words can express right now.
The thought of rituals and protocols excite mouse there are things that mouse always does and sometimes they're done without thinking, while others are hugely mindful. These rituals were probably mostly developed by mouse that rest within the rules established by Daddy.
Ok -- the biggest rule is just obey. But there are a few sub-rules.
Each morning (when possible) mouse wakes Daddy with oral. Yes, we still do that. It requires mouse to move slowly, nudge him with her head (hands aren't allowed) face, or nose even...whatever it takes to get access. Sometimes he stops her and we have sex, or he'll let her finish...rarely he refuses. If we're running late, it'll be a quickie.
While he showers, mouse warms his towel and arranges his shaving stuff. Including a hand towel.. Then mouse heads downstairs to make his breakfast. Well, she makes breakfast for everyone. When he comes into the breakfast room the table is set (it's a cheat and set the night before), and serves him coffee. He enjoys a small splash of cream in his coffee. It's stirred by mouse three times and handed to him.
The coffee is always served to him that way. Even if we're in a restaurant. For just the first cup -- after that he's on his own.
The evening after Daddy is home from work, mouse always meets him at the door -- unless she can't leave the stove -- and takes his briefcase and coat, and hands him a drink (usually he prefers an iced tea unless his day's been miserable). When he's settled in his chair, mouse brings him something to nibble if he chooses. Always, she kneels before him and takes off his shoes.
For the maintenance ritual, mouse always asks for it and thanks him afterward. Thanking him before and after are really the important parts for mouse. The after is always tearful, and ends with mouse kissing his fingers. Whatever he uses or does during those now precious sessions is always something for mouse to be thankful of. Displaying openly that gratitude is big part.
