hey mouse, I was interested in how nos 3 and 7 of Social Expectations and Etiquette came about - do you have no interest in these things anyway or is a real task to submit and not get to talk about them?

monkey girl said...

no. 11 under mental expectations would be soooooo hard for me I tend to be a worrier. what does "borrow trouble" mean? just curious.
I find this new tab/page of expectations, comforting.

mostly mouse said...

When Daddy found mouse once at a party actively engaged in a heated debate on religion and abortion, in relation to an election.

He was truly mortified. While he didn't exactly disagree, he made the rule to avoid conflict. He would prefer mouse discuss such matters with him alone -- we often debate certain subjects.

Honestly there isn't a lot of interest these days -- nothing really changes -- but it's still hard to bite her tongue on a few button issues in public settings.

mostly mouse said...

It means to not be so concerned with all "what if's" and be concerned only of the what if becomes real...because as he points out...most times they don't.

Honestly, mouse used to always borrow trouble but has become much better about things like that.

c said...

Why was he mortified? Do you know? Did he think it was inappropriate in any way, or did it bother him that you didn't say what he would have said?

And I guess the two of you know what you mean, but what in the world is "masculine" subjects?

I think Mistress could absolutely make such a rule for me, in a similar situation, simply because I can get very agitated and intense about things, and if I tended to get worked up about certain issues in social settings she would probably ban them. But it's not an issue at this time, because we don't have time for very much social life. If we had, it would probably be another matter.

c said...

Two of the expectations, about keeping the eyes lowered and not speaking without spoken two, seems really far-reaching and effecting daily interactions a lot. Do they, or is that just my imagination? Isn't it awkward and a bit impractical, looking down and not speaking? How does that work in an on going conversation, at the dinner table or when out and about doing stuff? How does it work out if you're working together, cooperating around something, or fixing things together?

Do you seamlessly adjust to different situations, so that you both know what behaviour is appropriate in each setting, or is it always the same? I know you've written blogpost where you've described yourself as talking a lot, and I can't make that mesh with not speak unless spoken to - but maybe I'm missing something?

He was mortified by what mouse said, again, while he didn't completely disagree -- he does support "choice" he felt mouse should have kept her thoughts to herself. We travel in very conservative circles. Most are anti-choice and quite religious and mouse is quite opposite of that.

"Masculine subjects" would probably include money, politics, business. economy...maybe other stuff that mouse hasn't given much thought to. Although mouse hasn't heard anyone discussing anything along those lines, save for in passing. He just wouldn't want mouse to chime in.

It sounds terrible on the surface, doesn't it? That mouse isn't free to voice her opinion on certain subjects but she must remember Daddy must work with these people. There are at times, in the car on the way home, mouse will complain a little.

mostly mouse said...

Thanks C for such a great question. Honestly mouse didn't give it much thought before but can totally see where it might seem confusing.

It's very situational and something mouse is more supposed to keep tucked into the back of her mind like all the mental expectations because they're (with a few exceptions) more about controlling thoughts than actually controlling speech or behavior.

So, yes there is a rather seamless adjustment made depending on the situation. Keeping ones eyes lowered while doing certain tasks like shopping however has proven quite useful. The only reason mouse can think is that she probably seems less approachable than the person looking at everyone in the eye...

Now, also it's probably worth mentioning that it's completely impolite to not look someone in the eye while you're talking with them. It's also considered bad form (according to Daddy and Emily Post) for a lady to walk up to people (especially men) she doesn't know and strike up a conversation without having been introduced. Weird social thing that mouse knew nothing about (probably because things are so different today it seems).

When we host a party then it is mouse's job more or less to handle introductions, especially if guests aren't too acquainted. Around the dinner table mouse will prompt kiddo especially.

Hugs <3

i had to go away and think about this, because it does sort of sound a little bit terrible maybe, on the surface. But then again.. this smacks to me, of a discovery I made some years ago- before we were consciously aware of and exploring TTWD. That, whether I liked it or not, what I did and said and how I carried myself reflected upon him and that there was no point arguing that it shouldn't be so, really there was no point doing anything other than accepting it and getting on with it and because I loved and respected him, from that point on I have often changed my behaviour in ways I wouldn't otherwise have done so and sometimes resent, if I'm honest.

I shared this discovery (my behaviour reflecting on my husband I mean, NOT TTWD!) with my mum and she absolutely got it too.

"mouse has no opinion of politics, religion and will ask Master for his thoughts before accepting the thoughts of others."

Could you elaborate on this, please? Particularly the "accepting the thoughts of others" bit. It initially reads something like "if someone gives me their opinion on one of these subjects , or tells me something about a religious or political group, I can't accept it without Master's permission". And that confuses me because you can accept that a person has a certain view without adopting that view yourself.

Or do you mean that if they offer to share their views with you, you cannot accept their offer without checking first?

Anonymous said...

Oh the whole "never presume to know Master's thoughts." hit home for me.

I worry so about saying anything, from fear of what he'll think or what if he thinks I'm using what I think to try to control him or elicit a response.

Thanks for this,

mostly mouse said...

Sorry, it's taken mouse too long to get back to you on this question.

The expectation is that if someone offers an opinion, but makes it seem as fact, mouse is to ask Daddy before repeating...whatever it might be.

Hope that helps,

mostly mouse said...

We all do that at times, we'll make assumptions about what their thoughts are, only to discover we had it cmpetely wrong.

Sure sometimes we do get it right, but if mouse is honest with herself, she's gotten wrong more times. :)
