Make it Better

We were having a playful conversation in the kitchen while waiting for dinner to cook, and I used the opportunity to get a hug or two from Ron. As I put my arms around him I told him, "You were so hard on my bottom last night, I think you should do something to make it feel better now."

As I felt his hands move from my waist to my bottom cheeks, then gently squeeze and rub them, he asked innocently, "How? With a mustard plaster*?"

I pulled away and looked at him, surprised - and I must confess - excited. He grinned at me, and it was a very evil grin indeed.

I'd better not tell him about ginger. That man is creative enough already.

*A medicinal plaster made with a pastelike mixture of powdered black mustard, flour, and a small amount of water, spread onto a fabric base that is placed on the skin. Used especially as a counterirritant.

From Hermione's Heart

My family has used them for very bad asthma attacks,helps draw the phlegm out. YUCK! Though we just use Coleman's dry hot mustard and water.

Good to see you home safe and sound. Now we can all get back to normal, or something like that, lol.

Greenwoman said...

Don't tell him about tiger balm either or you'll be in even deeper doo-doo. LOL!

Sara said...

Yuck and ouch! Hermione you are becoming a glutton for punishment! :)

Hermione said...

Kate - I tried one once when I was a teen, for a bad chest cold. It wasn't so bad.

Fab - yes, I'm back. Normal? Who, me?

Greenwoman - We have some of that too, but he hasn't thought of using it there.

Sara - Don't worry. I didn't see any ready-made ones on the drugstore shelves, and he's not about to make his own from scratch. I think my bottom is safe for now.

I say tell him about the ginger! You'll love it, honsetly!

Now, here's an idea that I don't want to try! I can imagine the burn. Good luck with that, Hermione.


ronnie said...

Oh no, wouldn't like to try that at all.


ginger said...

or wasabi...hehehe


Hermione said...

PK - I might, but then again...

Carly - Who knows? It might be fun in a week or so.

Ronnie - Imagine the little square red patches they would leave. Ugh!

Ginger - Oh, that would be MUCH worse!

Hermione: seems like you are asking Ron to experiment with figging, before a spanking. Interesting for Ron to experiment....

Hermione said...

Mike - I don't think so. But some of the other comments are persuading me in that direction!
