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 actuallyhim. 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 . 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.
