The Things We Miss When Life Gets Busy
Examples of Required communication in a Higher MODE such as the slave mode: Speech will change depending on the MODE a Master has placed his slave in.
A. “Master” is the Master’s role, title, and name. A slave will always refer to him only as “Master”, “The Master” , “my Master”, “Sir”, or “my Owner” depending on how it is being used in a sentence and to whom the slave is speaking.
B. A slave’s reference to herself is always “Your slave” or “Your property” or “she” as a secondary reference when speaking to her Master. When speaking with others, a slave refers to herself as “this slave” and uses “she” as a secondary reference. A slave will never use the words “me”, “my” or “I”. The only exceptions are that a slave can say “my Master”, “my slave sister”, or “my slavery”
C. A slave says “Sir, Yes Sir, Thank You Sir!” every time the slave:
- i. Is given any order
- ii. Is told any piece of information, even if it doesn’t affect her
- iii. Has her speech or behavior corrected or explained
The slave says “Sir, No Sir, Thank You Sir!” when her response is negative.
I miss this. I mean, we never did the “Sir, yes sir, thank you, sir!” thing. Master tailored it to His liking as He does pretty much everything. And I fought it every step of the way as I do pretty much everything.
This one day, we were driving to work, and He forgot that He’d left me in our version of slave mode. I wasn’t allowed to speak unless spoken to, and He hadn’t spoken to me.
He says, rather sarcastically, “So obviously you have a problem with the way I handled your behavior this morning. Out with it.”
And I blink up at Him and stare for a moment. “What’re you talking about?”
“Well you haven’t said a word since we got in the truck.”
“Master, you left me in slave mode. I’m not allowed to talk unless you do, and you haven’t.”
“Oh. Well. I guess I better take you out of slave mode so you can work.”
I laughed. He glared.
As much as I hate it and rail against it, I miss the formality.
