I earned beltings every so often. All but 1 time I earned every one of them. My poor Grandma, Daddy’s mom, said she and Grandpa never did lay a hand on their 3 kids. I said, maybe they didn’t do the things we did, or something like that. I honorably retired from serving in the US Air Force, with my husband (we were both C 141 mechanics) and we never did run out and shoot a bunch of people at a local fast food joint, nor try to wipe out a high school, nor any other place we worked after we got out. We are not hooked on any drugs, unless you count dark chocolate. AND we have not divorced after over 28 years of marriage.
We never had kids, the Air Force said both of us couldn’t stay active duty if we did. All ours are 4 footed and furry and that’s ok, too.
