    Pitching pennies In 7th grade,

    one of the things some students did to pass the time at lunch was to pitch pennies. The way we played, one person tossed a penny or other coin toward a wall, and then the next, and so on. The person whose coin was closest to the wall won and got to keep the other coins. If we...

    I Volunteered For A Paddling

    Contrary to what many people think, New York State had school paddling right up to 1985. Most students did not talk about it much, since it was pretty embarrassing to tell others that the principal spanked you, especially in high school! The paddle was not very difficult to avoid...

    Annie Gets the Paddle!

    Annie was one of my co-workers where I was employed. She was a little bit of a thing, and only came up to my nose—and I am 5' 5”. So Annie must have been about five feet tall without her heels. Still, she was a feisty lady and took no nonsense from people, whether co...

    How The Gretch Got Paddled!

    As many readers of my stories know, I received a serious paddling in my Senior year of high school. The principal applied the swats, and although he was a very nice man, with a paddle in his hand he was amazingly lethal! The six hard spanks left my rear end decorated with bulls...

    Caught! Although I was not a really bad girl

    at the schools I went to I did get my fair share (perhaps more than my fair share) of school spankings. One reason was that I never quite knew when to stop being mischievous and the other was a tendency I had to get caught. Like the time in the summer of the fifth grade when Ms...
