Happy New Year to all Saturday Spankings readers. I hope everyone is looking forward to a wonderful 2016. I’m going back and getting snippets from all the Cassie books. Today’s snippet is from the third book, Cassie on the Move. Cassie, Tom and friends are on a cruise. One of the on board show is an adult themed, late night comic with what Tom feels is probably a total inappropriate show. Tom tells Cassie they won’t be seeing that particular show. Cassie’s annoyed at what she sees as his ridiculous overprotectiveness.
We also have a difference of opinion on, shall we call it, “risqué humor.” Being totally honest, I have to admit I love to hear a good off-color joke – yet Tom simply won’t abide one being told in my presence, and heaven help my butt if I am the one telling the joke. I’ll still repeat a good joke to the girls if I hear one, but never in front of Tom.
I suppose this sounds sweet and gallant to some, but I truly don’t understand. Exactly what is Tom trying to “protect” me from? Not only have I heard a lifetime of dirty jokes, I probably lived most of them before we met, and he knows it. As for the “bad” language, I have sufficient vocabulary, and sometimes the desire, to cuss enough to make a sailor blush. I don’t, at Tom’s request, but it’s not like I am going to hear something new. I saw the whole thing as Tom just being bossy and unreasonable. And, unfortunately, that always sets off my desire to get away with something, and since Sue was along, plans were hatched.

Plans were hatched lol. Cassie does love to court trouble.ReplyDelete
So true. It's like a moth to a flame. But it won't be her wings that get burned.Delete
I'll bet Tom just doesn't want to set a precedent he thinks isn't good for Cassie. It's not protection as much as it is keeping the lid on a can of worms he never wants her to open again.ReplyDelete
Well put Kathryn, that could very well be true.Delete
Cassie and Sue can get in trouble standing still in a room full of people. It would be great fun to be friends with them - life would never be dull.ReplyDelete
That's the truth - I still want to be Cassie when/if I grow up.Delete
Oh, I do love an adult-themed comic ... and have a mouth similar to Cassie's - although it sounds like she keeps a lid on better than I do! Great snippet, PK ... I'd definitely be making plans with Cassie and Sue ;)ReplyDelete
Cassie contains it as best she can and Tom is there as the enforcer when she can't. Come back next week to find out what happened after the show.Delete
Cassie is my kinda gal!ReplyDelete
Thanks, mine too!Delete
Why does it seem like all old fashioned men don't want women to swear, but it's okay if they do? Great snippet!ReplyDelete
Happy New Year!
So true, although Tom VERY rarely swears around Cassie.Delete
Ha ha, Tom's just a gentleman, whether Cassie wants to be a lady or not.ReplyDelete
Isn't that the truth!Delete
I think Cassie is headed for TROUBLE! This can only end excitingly well ;)ReplyDelete
You're right Christina. Come back next week to see what happened.Delete
Plans hatched! Mischief in the making :)ReplyDelete
That's Cassie all over!Delete
Another fab snippet, PK. Damn, I wish I had more time for reading!ReplyDelete
