Have you ever had to. . .

. . . create your own line?

Part of my punishment from Chris is to write lines. Or, as he says,

200, written in one sitting. No taking breaks to do anything else until they're done...you can sit and rest your arm occasionally, but other than that, you're not to get up except for necessary bathroom breaks.

Also,

You will select the sentence to be written. It will be at least six words long and appropriate to the situation, but does not need to be incredibly specific. Do not even think about coming up with something smart-assed, or you will be even sorrier than you're already going to be.

Well, damn. I've had to write lines a few times before, but I've always had one assigned to me. It was drudgery, but didn't involve much thought. It turns out that this is really hard. Hard because so many, many impertinent, sassy lines come to mind. Hard because I don't want it to be too long. Hard because it has to be "appropriate to the situation." And also hard because

Once the lines are written, the first page will be scanned and posted to your blog.

Eep.

Wow, he is evil! He always seemed so easy going when viewed from his blog and from Sparkle's...

Iris has this way of inspiring people!

Anonymous, I agree. {sadly shaking head} I used to think he was easy going too. And nice. And gentle.

I still hope he's all those things, but I don't expect them. {sweet smile turned northward}

And M, thank you, honey. ;-)

So, I assume writing "OK to be posted" 200 times wouldn't really be totally appropriate to the situation....
I have faith that you'll come up with something, though, Iris....

Oh, God, Iris - this is impossible! I checked back to see what you'd done, and it's no wonder there's nothing here. I don't even know the topic and nothing but smart ass comments come to mind. A little hint - don't listen to music - it get's worse!

I am so glad you started a blog. I enjoy reading your entries on Punishment book and also you, sparkle and chris's stories on their blogs. Keep up the good work. I really enjoy it.
