Erica Scott: Life, Love and Spanking

Ruminations, opinionated observations, darkly humorous blathering and the occasional rant from an outspoken spanko and unapologetic attention wh–, um, hog.

♪ Vaccinated and it feels so good… ♫

Look, look! Here I am in all my bare-faced, I-haven’t-worn-makeup-in-fourteen-months glory, after receiving Moderna vaccine #2.

So hey, now besides having a chip on my shoulder, I have a chip IN my shoulder as well! (snicker) Still waiting for the 5G to kick in, though.

Side effects report: Last night was a bit rough. Woke up in the middle of the night with a fever and aching all over. But after a Tylenol/Advil combo, that settled a bit and I was able to get a little more sleep. Today… sooooo sleepy. Having a hard time focusing. But no more fever or pain. Quite worth it, I’d say.

I got lectured on Twitter for talking about the side effects, saying it would discourage people on the fence about the vaccines. Oh, please. Seems to me people should know what to expect — and to know it’s all temporary and they will be just fine. Also, the high of knowing this is done supersedes the discomfort.

I sent this picture to my friend in Oregon, saying mission accomplished, I’m vaccinated. He replied with this:

Two weeks and you get to bury your face in a pillow while I remind your bottom what a good spanking feels like!

Oh my God. This is really happening. I’m going to play for the first time since February 2020. (The light playful stuff with John doesn’t count.)

I would imagine the nerves are going to set in, big time, as it gets closer. I know I’ll be in good hands, but damn, it’s been so long! How will my body react? Will I have any tolerance? This is the longest I’ve gone without playing, by far, since I first got into spanking 25 years ago.

And even more concerning… after over a year of basically sitting on my ass and watching time tick by, what is said ass going to look like from a top’s view? Granted, I’ve never stopped exercising. But still, working out at home doesn’t replace the gym. I’m still not willing to go back to mine, though. So, along with the building’s treadmill and my weights and bands, I treated myself to a piece of exercise equipment. It’s called The DB Method, came highly rated online, and is essentially a squat machine.

DB stands for Dream Butt. One can hope.

In other play news, it looks like Shadow Lodge over Labor Day weekend in Vegas is a go. It’s being capped at 200 and Joe is asking people to be fully vaccinated. I hope people will bring their vaccination cards, because I for one will want to see them. I’m certainly bringing mine. It’s a bit scary, the thought of being around so many people in a small space after all this time of isolation, but hopefully things will feel a lot safer in four months.

Honestly? I am in no hurry to go back to being among people. My reclusive tendencies really took over in this past year. But I need to play. I need to feel those feelings again. I need that connection, that release. I’ve missed it so very much. I’m hoping that I can find someone local once again. But first things first — gotta get back in the saddle, so to speak. Less than two weeks… !!

  1. Congrats on getting the vaccine. I have to admit that I am a bit jealous that you are going to get to play soon and go to a party, I hope that you know how lucky you are. But I did get spanked in June 2020, so it has not been so long for me. Have a great time

    I was surfin’ the net a few days ago and saw a mighty fine butt getting a few stripes and thought, that looks familiar. Sure enough it was that member of spanking royalty that was kind enough to send me a personal reply a while back. I get my second jab here in the UK near the end of the month; I hope you too are safe to break cover soon. So sorry about the cuc Harry we sent you. Bit embarrassing that one. M.M. must be an embarrassment to you folks.
    Pip pip. JB


    • JB — royalty, bah. If people are nice to me, I’m nice back! 🙂
      Aww… I like Harry and Meghan. Then again, I don’t have any emotional investment with the Royal family. Never cared for all the pomp and circumstance. I suppose if I lived in the UK, I might feel different.


  3. Congratulations, Erica! My wife and I are vaccinated now too and it’s such a relief.

    People should absolutely be aware of what possible side effects are and I’m definitely glad people are sharing their experiences freely.

    I’m so happy for you that you’re going to get to play soon. Hopefully, having that break in between times will make it that much more exciting. I don’t know what the personality is of the Top you’re going to be playing with, but speaking for myself, I’m very excited by a woman’s softness and vulnerability when it comes to spanking or other corporal punishment play. So if you are a little “softer” back there, that may add to his excitement as well 🙂


  4. Welcome to the vax club!

    We are living almost normally here again. BUT I just found out some people we know well are firmly “anti-vax” even though they could get them. It’s just ridiculous.

    I’m very sure you have nothing to worry about, regarding the shape of your lovely bottom. I do bet that the butterflies might pick up a bit thinking about how it might look after though! Hopefully you have the option of standing for work the next day!


  6. Lucky you! I’m jealous because I have to wait until August for my second Pfizer shot. But I did read yesterday that “they” are thinking of moving up the second dose dates for everyone. How? Bureaucratic nightmare, methinks.

    Don’t worry about putting people off by mentioning side effects. I suspect very few Republicans read your blog.



    • Hermione — oh noooo. Damn! I hope they do move things up. The delay is counterproductive, it seems. I’m sorry.

      Ha — they don’t read it… or they do, and bitch about me behind my back. 😉

    Fantastic! I’m so happy you received your vaccination. I was really lucky that I didn’t have any side effects. My uncle did and he said his butt really hurt. Lol
    I’m also very happy you’re able to play again soon.
    You take care and I hope you have a good weekend.

    All My Best,


    • Liza — I’ve never heard of anyone getting the vaccine in their butt before! (laughing) Glad you didn’t have any side effects.

        LOL – He got the shot in his right arm and his whole right side was in pain but he said the pain was really bad in his butt. My poor cousin had to listen to him whine.
        BTW, I meant to tell you, you look great without makeup.
        I hope you have a great weekend.
