When we got home from dinner out last night, Lion took a few impromptu naps. We hadn’t slept well the night before so I figured he was too tired to play. I was wrong. He woke up from his cat nap and was ready to go. I scooted closer to snuggle and, as I do sometimes as a joke, I pulled on the cage and said I couldn’t get in. He told me I could. I pulled again and said I was locked out. He said I have the key and I said it was way over there. (Scintillating conversation, I know.) Then, on a whim, I decided to see if I could unlock him without the key. To our surprise, the screw came out just using my fingers. Apparently I hadn’t tightened it very well. But I’ve also noticed that it’s worked its way loose if I leave Lion locked up for a few days in a row. This is not good news. Not just from a Lion-shouldn’t-be-unlocking-himself point of view, but also from the point of view of the screw getting lost. We may have another one around here somewhere, but I don’t want to lose it at all. I guess we’ll have to keep an eye on it.
The other thing I was thinking about last night was getting him aroused without actually edging him. Of course, I didn’t do that, but I was thinking about it. In the beginning I started off like I normally do, but then I stopped and told Lion maybe I’d just play with him without edging. There’s nothing he can do about it anyway, but the next thing he knew, he was at the edge and, damn, not going over. I really wanted to give him an orgasm, but I think it’s important for him to wait a while this time. I’m not sure why exactly, but he should. I’ll try to restrain myself.
Earlier in the evening, Lion spilled some food on his shirt. I should have punished him when we got home, but I didn’t. When I first started playing with him, I was going to tell him that I wanted him in diapers first thing in the morning because he’d made a mess of his shirt, but I didn’t want to kill the mood. I figured I could tell him when we woke up. Unfortunately, we woke up late after both getting some much needed sleep. I forgot all about the diapers. That’s OK. My paddle and I will catch up with him at some point.
