"Um… Dad? Maybe you could just take me over your knee instead?"
"Oh, no, son. You said you were too old for that, remember? You said that spankings were for misbehaving kids. Only little boys get their butts smacked red. And you’re a young man now."
"Well, yeah. But I kind of meant that I shouldn’t get spanked at all."
"Oh, don’t be silly. Men your age still need discipline, it just needs to be a lot harder to get through to them! I’m glad you were mature enough to recognize that on your own, even if it was partly subconscious. Now stick those cheeks out and tell me what you did to earn this."
