    Last Night; August 14, 2012 Ad/ Ce

    Last night, I was tired but could not sleep. That is not a rare experience for me but also it is not a daily thing. My mind wandered. It is rare for my mind to not wander. My thoughts came around to something about spanking, which also is far from a rare occurance for me. It...
