“Huh?”. It’s a simple word, really.
And yet, I find it distasteful.
Now, this is just me. But under my leadership, any submissive, when engaging in discussion with me, should be speaking politely. If I say something that, for whatever reason, they mishear, “Huh?” is not the response that you say.
“I beg your pardon?”
“Sorry, what was that?”
So forth and so on.
My kitten has been struggling with remembering to exclude the idea of using “Huh?” as a response if she mishears me. In the past, I have, perhaps been a bit too kind, and let her off with a warning. Tonight, I did not. I told her that when she is finished her dinner, she can undress and bend over my knee.
I take no pleasure from smacking her, nor does she take pleasure from being smacked. At least…when it is a punishment.
The dislike of “Huh?” as a response, if I had to guess, comes from my upbringing. My father disliked it as well, as well as “What?”.
It’s actually interesting how much my upbringing kind of plays into who I am as a Dominant.
In any case, this has been my Wednesday evening. How has yours been?
