A close one

As I've posted before I have mixed feelings about public play. The thought of being reprimanded and punished in public appeals to my discipline fetish no end. But the reality is a scary prospect. Mostly it's just enough to know it could happen. As in getting the look or a firm command to behave. And then I do, cos I don't want to suffer the consequences.

But I ran very close the last time I visited HH! There was a whole 10 seconds of agony where I thought he was going to take me by the ear and position me in the corner of the nice Chinese restaurant we were in. Because HH and I have simple rules. I misbehave, I get a warning. Continue to do so and I'll be punished. End of.

We'd had a very nice meal and were relaxing with our drinks when trouble started brewing. Getting restless, Kami and I started to sword fight with our unused chopsticks (having eaten with forks). HH duly warned us to behave and leave the chopsticks for the next people to use. And then started musing about which was the most suitable corner for naughty girls to stand in!

So we were relatively good until an argument over whether the chopsticks were recyclable or not started. Again the order to behave was given. But in that tone, with the look. OK, time to stop pushing. I was already squirming on my seat.

And that's when I managed to break the chopsticks, completely by accident. Kami and Nikki laughed out loud but I couldn't join in. I was reduced to babbling apologies and promising I hadn't meant to do it. As HH stared at me my face flushed a deep red and I gave him my most pitiful look (think Puss in Boots in Shrek!). Finally he told me I was on my final warning. The relief. I really didn't want to have to go stand in that corner.

I spent the rest of the time with my head in my hands praying that the bloody waiter would hurry up and bring the bill so we could leave before my luck ran out completely!

Although looking back at it now I can enjoy the squirmy feelings. All the embarrassment of a public punishment, but without anything actually happening. Except I don't think I want to come so close again, not sure the Puss in Boots look would work twice!

Wow! Close call! I know exactly what you mean about that fine line -- the exhibitionist in me finds it incredibly hot to think about, but if it were actually to happen... *shiver* no way... I don't think I'd be able to handle it...

Good job getting so close, though :D

Bwa-ha-ha!! I can *so* picture you doing Puss-In-Boots from Shrek. That's made my morning!
I know what you mean about publice punishment though. Eek!

EmmaJane, you paint a gruesome and pathetic picture, but fun. LOL
Warm hugs,

Shiver. I can imagine that threats are much more potent in public than in private.. I sure will behave when going out with my Master in the future. :P

There is an effective 'Puss in Boots' look? I look forward to seeing that someday, perhaps.

I think that would be a hard limit for me in a public, vanilla setting. OTOH, having to go outside for a 'discussion' is an extremely hot fantasy.
