At the age of 10 I graduated from hand spankings to the hairbrush. It was a terrible shock and I couldn't believe how much worse it hurt. But the ultimate was the bath brush, which was reserved for really bad things. One smack of the bath brush was worse than a dozen of the regular hair brush. What made it even worse was even though I was kicking and wigging all over she could smack the same spot a dozen times without a miss. One spank on top of another was pure agony.
