That's the sentence I wrote over, and over, and over, and over again last week.
Before we started DD, and I'd heard about the writing lines punishment, I thought that's got to be the easiest thing in the world. It definitely isn't.
Thankfully it isn't a punishment my husband uses often. But, when he does, it really isn't fun.
So, to make matters a little more fun for me, I decided to try and not number the sentences, start them at random points on the page, and basically make it a jumbled mess so that he would literally have to read the several pages of repeated sentences and try to count them/piece them together one by one to see if I'd even done them.
This, folks, is not a good idea.
Him: "Babe, how many have you done?" (asked about mid-way through)
Me: "I don't know, you'll have to count them."
Him: (glancing over at the page) "You need to be numbering them."
I ignored it, and kept writing along, making a jumbled mess of un-numbered sentences for him to read and decipher.
Him: "Babe, start numbering them or you're going to have to write more."
There's where my stupidity came into play.
I ended up having to write about 20 more than usual, which definitely sucked. Needless to say, the sentences were clearly numbered by time I was done, and my fun filled game was over. :(
But hey, at least my 1 year no spanking challenge is still going strong!
Moral of the story: If you're supposed to write lines, just write them. Don't turn it into a puzzle- your husband won't like it, lol.
