About Verbal


I have two teenage daughters, which take up the bulk of my time. I like to read. I like to write. I spend way too much time staring at the night sky. And a little too much time watching baseball. Anything else you'd like to know, ask. I'm not exactly an open book, but I like to talk, and I like to listen.

I am soon to be married to the prettiest girl in the room, LaylaJune, whom I met here on Lush. So obviously I do not cyber. I may flirt, and while I love to talk about sex, I love to talk about almost anything. Layla is a gift, a poem, and all I desire. Respect that.

I value playfulness, in sex and in writing and in life. I am fond of light (and sometimes not so light) bondage, blindfolds, lingerie, toys. I love to tease and edge. I have a serious thing about playing with pearls, I have no idea where it comes from, something to do with straddling the borderlands between classy and filthy.

I tend to go onto Lush for quick visits to check my timeline and nose around the Forums. So if you BB me and I don't respond, or abruptly stop talking, please don't take it personally, one of my kids probably just walked into the room. Write me an email and I will be happy to receive it, and to respond. I love email because it is so similar to writing letters, back in the day. My kids say only old people email anymore. They are probably right.

Yes, the avatar is me.

Thanks. She's a feisty little 9-month-old with a lot of personality that won't go down for her nap. Mommyhood at it's finest.

Congrats! You will have 12 years of near-bliss. After that they turn into teenagers. :)

Just finished mowing the lawn, with a push mower no less (it's what I do instead of join a gym). An ice cold Miller Lite please. I generally hate light beer, but it's a perfect thirst quencher after yardwork.

The idea that you have to earn respect is what gets this world in so much trouble. It means people don't respect others, unless the other did something to 'earn their respect'.
It's the other way around: everyone should get the privilege of one's respect, unless they show they're not worthy of it.

Exactly. Respect can be lost, but until it is, it should be freely given.

Of course, once lost, is is difficult to earn back.

These kids aren't acting like animals because of entitlement. They, like the school shooters, are broken and angry and maybe irreparable. It does not absolve them from guilt, or the the idea of free will in choosing their actions. But to blame it on participation trophies and no-score soccer leagues is sticking your head DEEP into the sand, rather than looking for genuine answers.

Topic: The Americans have spoken on gun control !

Are you kidding me? Please say you are being sarcastic and I've missed your tone.

This shows everyone just how far out of touch with the world of our youth you are. I am a mother of two kids, six years apart so I have a Generation Y or a Millennial and I have a Generation Z or a Boomlet.

Let me tell you a few facts about them and how much stress they don't have (that was sarcasm if it didn't carry through).

Not only are the pressures of school laid on their head. Oh yes, I said the pressures of school, they expect far more from those kids than they ever did your generation or even my own. They have to deal with the harsh side of the internet and social media.

You can scoff that off all you want to, but you have no idea the pressure and stress of living in a world where everything you say, everything you wear, every single move you make can potentially be used against them online.

When I tripped at school, they laughed and it was over. A child trips at school now and it becomes a meme and shown over and over and over again. Can you imagine living in a world where no one, especially some adults, thinks beyond their keyboard? Where every awkward thing you say is recorded for them to look at and for future generations to look at including employers and college administration. For people to make fun and not take a moment to understand. The pressure of being perfect is real for them. Don't act like it's not.

Then to top it all off now they have to have, starting in kindergarten, gun safety drills. At five years old some of our kids are being taught to duck under their desks because another student or an adult could come in and shoot them.

No stress there.

What were you learning in kindergarten? What was your biggest fear in high school? Do not talk to me about the threat of war, because guess what, buddy, they are in the middle of that too!

People like you, from generations that have no day to day interaction with anyone under the age of twenty-five, can sit there and spout all of your rage and hate and say things like that towards our future, but you are wrong.

These kids are amazing and they want to do better, they want to be better and they want to fix the mistakes of the past, not repeat them over and over and over again.

Unless you are witness to it, you will never understand the amount of stress the youth of today is under.

So stick to spouting what you know, your gun laws and your rights to own them.

So well put, Doll.

I was routinely bullied in high school, being a debate/drama/lit mag nerd in a mid-western sport-worshiping town, and it was NOTHING compared to what I see now. My girls' middle school was like Lord of the Flies. High school is only a little better.

Just look at the angry, bitter exchanges on any given Think Tank thread and tell me being able to hide behind the anonymity of social media hasn't made people meaner, trash talk more common, and bullies more brazen. And the participants here are (at least chronologically) more mature than teenagers.

I'm not placing the blame at social media's feet. But it sadly mirrors the level of incivility in our country, and our schools, accurately.

Actually no, not everybody everywhere, but it has become de rigeuer here. We also have grade inflation so that kids' self esteem isn't damaged by any criticism. It goes on and on. At birthday parties, every child who attends gets a "goodie bag" filled with small presents so everyone leaves the party with something, not just the birthday boy/girl. I read of a school district that decided that athletic events would no longer be scored so there would be no winners or losers. We even have the phenomenon where the "helicopter mommy" goes with her college graduate "baby" to his/her first job interview. I kid you not. They do that.

What do you think happens to a young man raised in that kind of environment, who has never been allowed to fail at anything, never experienced a rejection in his entire life, then asks a young woman for a date and she says, "No Thanks"?

God forbid a child experience good self esteem.

I have kids, and have been to a lot of competitions, and coached T ball for a bit. Yes, everyone gets a little ribbon or trinket for participating. They should! It important to try your best even if you do poorly, and it's hard to not give up when you lose; not quitting when you suck is worth a ribbon. And the kids who do better get bigger trophies, and the kids who win get the biggest trophies of all. There is still recognition of excellence. That seems about the right way to do things, in my opinion.

School districts not scoring sporting events to avoid hurt feelings sounds like Fox "News" fantasia, like the War on Christmas.

Regardless, this incel insanity doesn't sound like kids who are coddled, it sounds like the opposite, kids who are angry and isolated and broken and have turned feral and mean. Frankly, they probably could have used a few participation trophies. They sound like the ones who quit playing when they didn't win anything right away, and didn't get shit.

I've been searching for a gif with a pole dancing Godzilla wearing kitty ears, a collar, and dressed in black leather & fishnets. I knew Verbs would like that. It could be the theme for his next Shard. Just can't find one. If any of you have time...

Sounds like me on a Saturday night. :)

Happy Friday everyone.

I have greatly shortened the number of stories on my sig line. This will hopefully keep Bill's screen reader from spending 20 minutes reading my list of stories. That's gotta be annoying.

Drove youngest to school, who realized half-way there she'd forgotten her homework, so we drove back home to get it, drove back to school, let her out, and half-way home saw she had left her homework in the car. Drove back, left it for her at the office.

Ah, parenthood.

After noon, yet I am still drinking köffee. That kinda day.

The series doesn't get that far but it does take liberties with other things. Gillian Anderson plays Lecter's psychiatrist and later his "wife". It is a very creepy but well-done series. I love creepy shows so it is perfect for me.

I am looking forward to HBO's adaption of Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451.

OMG! Gillian Anderson!!! I love her. I may give it a try.

That gives me an excuse to play one of my favorite three minutes in the history of television.

Good evening my fellow bar patrons. (Makes us all seem fancy)

I am for reasons I don't fully understand watching the Caps game against Tampa Bay this evening now. The Caps are up two games to one but not sure how they will do tonight The last time they played Tampa in the playoffs they were up two games to none and then lost four straight games. I am hoping that is not the case this year.

I'll take something soothing to calm my nerves. Or maybe just a beer, something Canadian please if you have it.

Cheers Everyone!

Hey all.

Serve the lovely Gill a LaBatts. I'll have one myself. Go Caps!

The new Shard, Wow, just got an RR. I also added two very Lush-specific lines of dialogue like ten minutes ago, inspired by Ping's comment on the story. So he's sort of a co-author at this point. Ping, you magnificent bastard!


AND I just finished the first draft of a new Shard. Good writing day.

Her laughter rang in the room like the singing of bells, and though they laughed often during sex, he did not ask her why until afterward. He had been fucking her doggy style, slapping her ass, pulling at her hair, grinding into her.  He toyed with the rim of her ass with his pussy-soaked thumb as he fucked her. “Do you need it in two holes?  Does my good girl need both her wet holes filled?”...

They planned the entire scenario with care. She dressed in that borderline classy/slutty way she deployed when she was bluntly trying to seduce him.

Editor's Pick Beneath

Lena lay naked on the sand in the middle of the night, right on the tideline, where the shore met the sea. She dozed on the edge of dreams, more in the water than out of it now, though when she first lay down only her feet were submerged. The tide had risen since then. Each wave took the water incrementally closer. Her feet and ankles grew wet first, her long legs followed, a few inches at...

She came like a thunderstorm, cried out and spilled forward with a breathy sob, bouncing down onto the carpet and flipping over in a single elegant motion. He fell back onto the floor in the opposite direction, his chest pounding, gasping for air. He let his leg lop over hers. For long moments they lay in the dark together, letting their breathing settle, their hearts slow. A gibbous moon...

Picture it: her nipple, glistening with cum. She loved dressing up for him, wearing anything he asked, making herself into a fuck doll, a sex toy. Anything he asked. Fishnet thigh highs, fishnet gloves. Collars and leashes. Thick, whorish makeup. He didn’t ask every time, but he did often. He found his mind took a series of photographs when she dressed like this, snapping away as he...
