Have you been naughty?
Last night the topic of hand cuffs came up in our telephone conversation. Please don't ask me to explain why.
Curiosa: Have you ever used handcuffs? The idea is intriguing, but I'm trying to imagine how that would work in practice. It seems like it would be more for a laugh than anything else.
Wild Child: Well, I've never used handcuffs, but I have used rope.
Curiosa: How did that work out?
Wild Child: Well, he couldn't tie a proper knot, so it ended up being rather silly. I got away.
Curiosa: Isn't the idea really to get off, rather than get away?
Wild Child: Mmmm, yes, ideally. You know, if you really want to talk to someone about this, you should talk to Annika. She's got all kinds of toys.
Curiosa (thinking about Annika's straight-laced ex-boyfriend Will and giggling at the image): She tied up Will?
Wild Child: Well, come on. Will is NOT the kind of guy you tie up and spank.
Curiosa: Is the Norrlänning there right now?
Wild Child: No, he's in the other room. I think.
Curiosa: Have you tied him up?
Wild Child: No, not yet, but we're working on it.
Curiosa: I'm thinking about my blog. How would a Swedish guy react if I brought out the handcuffs? Would it scare the be-jesus out of him?
Wild Child: Nah, I think he'd be very, very happy.
