In The Fourth Grade

I was personally acquainted with the paddle from the first grade on. When I was in the fourth grade, I was walking down the hall during class and when I passed the sixth grade room, I saw a girl giving herself swats with a paddle like this one.

I was mesmerized. The teacher was supervising and the whole class was watching. I froze and watched until I felt I would be caught the next second.

Who she was or what she did I never found out.

  1. Today you would have whipped out your cell phone, captured the moment, blackmailed the teacher into giving you an upclose and personal experience after school. . . .. After getting all you could from her you post it on Youtube [or SpankingTube] and watch the fires rage out of conrol. The times they are a'changin'.

  2. They never paddled at our school, but rulers were regularly applied to bottoms and legs, the ultimate was 'the strap', which only the headmaster/mistress was permitted to administer.
