Some women get chocolates for Valentine's Day. Some women get flowers. Sophie got a long hard spanking.
|Roses are red, Sophie is too...|
This wasn't a romantic spanking, however. It was a punishment spanking. She broke a rule, and so she needed to be spanked.
If this sounds unromantic, it's because we're always very strict about what counts as an excuse. The problem with allowing exceptions for special days is that whenever the paddle is looming, almost any circumstance becomes conveniently exceptional. Therefore, to avoid excuse after excuse, our rule is "when in doubt, give a spanking". Steve was once even spanked on his birthday.
