If your girlfriend had been home all day long, miserable and sick and alone, would you spank her? Even if she said that she still doesn't feel good and is achy and doesn't feel good?
Of course you wouldn't. That's because you're nice and you understand that when there are pre-existing agreements for things that have to get done, they don't apply when people get sick. Which means that you don't take someone by the hand, lead her into the bedroom, pull down her pajama pants, bend her over your knee, and spank her. You cuddle her and baby her and bring her more Vernors.*
Now could someone please explain that to M?
It's too late for today, but might save me for tomorrow.
* To be fair, M did do all these things too. But who's interested in being fair when you're sick and just got spanked?
