A Good Lickin' With The StrapIn our family if my dad used his belt for spanking it was always referred to as "the strap"!
After school one day I went off on my own without telling anyone. I was very daring and went to some areas of our town that were off limits for me. I lost track of time and when I got home it was dark. My mom and dad had been very worried and called around to various friends' houses looking for me. But no one had seen me that afternoon.
They were glad when I arrived home safely but were very angry with me. So I was sent up to my room and told to get ready for bed. A few minutes later mom and dad came up to my room. They said I needed to be taught a lesson to not go wandering off without telling them. So my dad pulled down my PJ bottoms, put me across he knee, and gave me a good lickin' with the strap. My hiney felt like it was on fire.
That was the 'warmest' welcome home I ever received.
