In all seriousness though, with the sad news of Irish Mike's passing, my thoughts are now on the time that I spent down in Florida at the beginning of this month. I want to start by saying that I had the great pleasure to meet Mike while I was there and was able to spank him on multiple occasions. He was a joy to be around and a true gentleman as everyone else's words seem to echo. I know that I will greatly miss being able to see him again, and I send my condolences to all his family & friends.
FMS - ThursdayThe airline overbooked my flight so I was booted and had to wait in the airport for 6 hours until I could get on a different flight. Once I finally arrived in Tampa, my roomie, Sassy, picked me up from the airport and we drove out to the hotel and checked in. Then her and I wandered around the hotel for a bit and then grabbed dinner at the patio restaurant. We then made it upstairs to the suite where they were having an informal get-together, and it didn't take long before I was spanking a few people. I saw a couple familiar faces but met a whole lot of new people. Even though I was already tired I was glad that I made myself go because it proved to be a very good start to the weekend.
FMS - FridayI slept in until noon. Went to the vendor fair that evening and browsed the booths that were set up. Got to meet John of Leather Thorn Paddles, whom I'd purchased a couple implements from online. There were many different booths set up, from implements, books, undies, and jewelry. We then played an ice breaker game where we had to ask people if they could answer questions on our list and then we paid up by giving or receiving 5 swats, and I was on the "giving" end. After this, John presented me with a new leather paddle (pictured here)! He gave me a couple swats with it and this sucker freakin' hurts! I met with a gentleman who'd requested a private discipline session with me, and it was amazing how when I was scolding him I felt like I could just go right into my own bottom headspace. I suppose maybe that meant that I was doing a good job? That's definitely the first that has happened to me while I have Topped. There were suite parties on into the night where I was able to Top several individuals and also was taken in hand by Craig Aych for a little bottom session which was very much enjoyed.
FMS - SaturdayI had to get up bright and early so that I could attend the Governess Gala at 10:30am...Yes, this is early for me, haha! There were quite a few female Tops who showed out to participate so we had to share space but we made it work. This was a fun time for me because I was able to meet many bottoms in a short amount of time because this was pretty fast paced. I had lunch with a friend at the patio restaurant, they served pretty good food because I ate there quite a bit. Then I met with another gentleman for a private session that afternoon before attending the ice cream social. Dinner was held that evening and I got dressed up a bit for that. The food was good and then we had door prizes and the spanking trivia game with lots of laughs. More suite parties this evening and I had the pleasure of Topping many more individuals. I also felt that I just had to ask Headmaster Tony to cane me because, well, he's Headmaster Tony! So of course he did and it was fun.
FMS - SundayI slept in once again and did not make it to the CP Court but I hear that it was a blast for all those who went. I had a wonderful session with Jenni Mack that afternoon and we were able to visit a little bit afterwards which was really nice. The rest of the day was pretty leisurely for me and the group of us that was still around that evening car pooled over to a seafood restaurant that sat right on the beach. This was the first time that I'd ever eaten with the beach right under my feet. Back at the hotel I took a stroll on the beach with a gentleman who I've known awhile from out East and we both caught a few moments to spank each other out in the open, so now we can each say we've been spanked on a beach. Later on I was able to co-Top a friend of mine and get some laughs in during the session. Co-Topping is an opportunity that I don't have very often but I sure enjoy it! Oh, and I also broke an implement over someone's bottom this day. I didn't think I spanked with enough force to do such a thing, but I kept the broken implement as a souvenir, weird I know- haha!
