Capturing the Moment

I was thrilled to find that last week's Red or Black post was Chrossed on the weekend. After all these years it's still gratifying when Mr. Chross notices one of my posts and singles it out for inclusion in his Spankings of the Week. My stats take a sharp upturn, and remain higher than usual for several days before settling back.

Speaking of stats, the number of pageviews I was getting dropped significantly after I added the adult content warning to my blog. My blog was no longer found in Google searches, and much of my traffic comes from Google. But then after a week or two, it once more reappeared in Google search, and now my stats are consistently higher than they were in the days before the adult content warning. Go figure!

But back to the subject of this post. I like to tell you about the spankings I receive. Trouble is, when something funny or memorable happens during a spanking, my first thought is, "I must blog about this" but then by the time the spanking is over, I have forgotten the details. This is especially true of the witty quips that Ron often comes out with. Unless I repeat the phrase over and over in my mind, it's often gone before I can record it. Spankings have a habit of driving all other thoughts out of my head, for some reason.

Ron would frown on my sitting down at the computer right after the spanking has concluded to blog about what had just transpired. To be honest, I don't feel much like sitting after one of his spankings. I try to jot down pertinent phrases on a bit of paper, but still I forget important details.

So the question is, how do I capture the moment? Setting up the laptop to record our session might be a solution, but I would be too embarrassed to ever watch it, and Ron would find it distracting. Maybe a tiny tape recorder like the ones we used at the office, hidden in my shirt, would be helpful. But they are quite expensive. I could hire a secretary to take down our memorable words in shorthand, but does anyone still know what shorthand is? How about if I stop Ron after he has spoken, then grab a pen and notebook and scribble down his words. No, scratch that. My handwriting would probably be unreadable because, knowing my husband, he would keep right on spanking.

I guess I'll just have to rely on my feeble memory to recall enough details from a spanking to create a post that is Chross-worthy.

Master will often 'suggest' a blog title while spanking, and i repeat it and think...great i do not like to make up titles. By the time i sit to blog, often i cannot think of the title for the life of me...i ask if He remembers..of course, He does.
Glad to hear spanking is the cause and not old

Hi Hermoine, congratulations on being Chrossed!

LoL, I can so relate to this. I struggle to keep the details in my head to post later then often, after I have published think of details I forgot to include!

I feel the same way Hermione! :) I try my best to make some notes or the start of a post shortly after each spanking so I remember the things that were said and done.

LOL once Rob had given me a spanking and I jotted down notes immediately when he had left the room. When he came back in he reiterated what he had told me during the spanking, or asked me if I remembered- something like that. I told him that I remembered EXACTLY because I made a note of his exact words. I took out my phone to read it to him. I think it got me further attention! LOL! I can't REMEMBER what post that was, I'll have to look it up! Ha! Many hugs,

<3 Katie

Your phone probably has voice recording on it, although I don't know if it has a time limit. I use it to record notes for myself when I can't text or write.

Congrats on being Chrossed. I have the 'memory' problem as well.

Hermione, it is probably a challenge of age. I would think if you try any of the things you suggest, Ron would spank you longer and harder. Hmmm, not a bad idea?


ps - the whole process of getting into your blog has lengthened a tiny bit and them I have to prove I am not a robot. But your blog is well worthwhile the effort.

Hermione, congratulations on being Chrossed. It still surprises me when I get Chrossed but very grateful.

I tend to make notes after being spanked. I have occasionally asked P if I have remembered words/phrases correctly.


Erica said...

Being Chrossed is still the best, isn't it? I'm lucky... for whatever reason, my brain retains enough of the pertinent quotes and banter so that I can relay it back on my blog. But don't ask me to remember anything of historical significance.

Hi Hermione, I so get this, I don't know what it is but remembering exact words during or directly after a spanking is so impossible for me too. :)

Hermione, I know shorthand! In the comic strip "Peanuts," when Snoopy is dictating to Woodstock, I can read it.
My pad, pencil and I are ready.


Cat said...

Congrats on being Chrossed Hermione! Oh yes, I know what shorthand mom used to leave notes for us kids and if she was in a hurry, she would write them in shorthand. I would then call her at work and try to describe to squiggle to see what it is she wanted me to do. LOL

Does your phone have memo capability? If so, you could record Ron's quips on it. ;)

Hugs and blessings...Cat

I'm glad I'm not the only one with memory trouble.
