My wife and i were at a dinner party last Satirday with close friends to celebrate the announcement of their son Gary's engagement to Sydney, a girl he met in college that everyone likes. My wife is Gary's godmother from before the time we married.We were doing a round of toasts when it was Sydney's turn. "I would like to toast my future mother-in-law for raising a wonderful son." Gary's mom Barbara beamed with pleasure from the toast.Sydney then asked, "What was your secret?"Barbara paused, grinned and then said, "Frequent bare bottom hairbrush spankings."That brought a round of laughter but Gary was very red faced and reminded me that my wife had also spanked him a couple of times while babysitting him.
