Gifts for Sir

21 Aug

Got home late last night, and am just happy, happy, happy to be here.  There are lots of things i’m appreciating this morning, but of course the best thing about home is Sir.

 It was wonderful to see Him as i came off the plane last night, and so nice to be able to sleep curled up with Him.  Fixing His coffee this morning, and hanging out side by side on our computers is such a treat.


Of course, i brought Him a some souvenirs from street vendors on my trip, and thought you might enjoy seeing a couple of them.   

Yep, a wooden spoon.

i know ~ am i nuts?  But it’s cool because it’s so small – see:

It’s only five or six inches long, and the bowl of it is only about an inch in diameter.   i thought it would be fun for spanking delicate areas, although honestly, i’m not sure Sir’s mind was even going there last night.  

And i’m sure He wasn’t thinking about kinky uses for this one:

Although ~ his first reaction was ~ “O, it’s a whip!”  

But it’s made of woven strands of something kind of like – palms, I guess.   It might sting a bit, but not much.  The internet suggests they can be made from rushes or from bamboo, or even with ribbon.

So, Sir  picks it up, realizes it isn’t a whip:

and  says, “O, it’s chinese handcuffs!”  


Are you familiar with them?  i wasn’t.  The street vendor thoroughly enjoyed showing me.

If you put your finger in the opening at the end of it, then pull back a little, like you’re going to take your finger out, then it closes tighter so your finger is trapped.

You can use them to keep your children close ~ Sir started talking about how handy they’d be {pun intended} for parents to use with children at the State Fair.

i don’t think He thought about the kinky potential for them.  But i pictured people at play parties and in dungeons leading their slave around with one.   Actually, you could lead a whole posse of slaves with them…

Can’t you picture it?  

There’s a metaphorical meaning to them too, of course.  The harder you try to pull your finger out, the more tightly trapped you are.  It is only when you relax and stop trying to escape, when you push back against the trap as if to put your finger deeper into it,  that it releases you.

Isn’t that the way life works often?

    You’re HOME! Yay! I had no idea Chinese finger traps also came with an attached leash. You know, my kids figured out how to get out of those things in a jiffy. I remember as a kid spending about 15 minutes locked in one, to my parents great amusement. That was the kind with an opening at both ends. Yeah. I was a slow learner back then!

    Did I mention how happy I am that you are back and safe n sound? Snuggled with your Sir? That sounds heavenly! Hope you get lots of rest…jetlag is a bitch.

    Love and hugs…
