Order my lunch

He worries about me from over there, across the ocean… I eat badly and don’t sleep… He expresses it gently, quietly, persistently… *worry worry*… It is sweet, this concerned caring.

I tell him, then, to order me a salad online for my lunch, something that allows him to contribute to looking after me, to extend that concern in a practical way. The salad bar is downstairs from my work… the choices are endless and relentlessly healthy: fresh greens, spinach, snow peas, carrots, artichokes, baby corns, green beans, tomatoes, olives, jalapenos, chicken, tuna, different dressings… I tell him he can add whatever he wants to the salad (no anchovies!). He puts a lot of thought into it, I can see his mind ticking over…

“What will she like?”

“Is this a good combination?”

“Which dressing?”

He has a level of fretting and concern that it will not taste good, that I will not like it, that he will get it wrong. He orders, tells me it is done, and waits for me to come back to him… approval, or no.

I go downstairs at noon like a good girl to pick up the healthy lunch he has put together for me. It makes me laugh softly to myself, it is hot and sweet and a mashup of the dynamic, which I love.

And it is a treat, a tasty surprise (oh, chilli… and egg!), he has done well. I feel holy and healthy and sweetly cared for as I crunch through the vegetables that I know I should eat more of. I think to myself, ‘This will make him happy’, as if I am some submissive girl, pleasing her master. That thought, too, makes me laugh as I make a mental note to tell him ‘No jalapenos next time’.

I look forward to making him do that again.

  1. slapshot: “What an awesome post!”

    *happy smile* Thank you!

    “…it is just those kinds of caring moments that truly good relationships are built upon…”

    I agree, I find the 'wanting to look after me' thing incredibly sweet, and somehow, in a D/s context, it is also sexier than it is in vanilla… I am not quite sure why that is, it just *is*.

  2. Fern, a lovely post.

    I agree it is sexier in a D/s context, but I think it is because this type of relationship is so much more intense.

    Dom/Domme or sub, we put so much of ourselves on the line, exposed in a way persons in a vanilla relationship rarely are. When the other person can see thru our bones and looks back with understanding, care and respect, how can that be anything but incredible.

    I think there may be an element of that, but in thinking about it a bit more, to me there is somehow a type of role reversal that totally works for me in things like this for reasons I can't quite explain.

    I love it when my submissive gets exasperated with me because we both know it's going nowhere… I just adore it. In this case, his gentle disapproval of my eating habits is both sweet and hilarious as he bites his tongue because he really wants to 'take me in hand' and give me a good talking to *laugh*.

    I think it's hot to *allow* him then to do the 'submissive' version of 'oh for fuck's sake, eat some frigging vegetables, woman!!' thing, as if he is 'ordering' me to do it, even while the dynamic is strengthened in the doing. The pleasure in that is impossible to explain, but it is both highly amusing and hot to me.

  4. Capsicum annuum are chock full of stuff that is good for people. The capsicum (that is the correct spelling!)in the jalapeno is what makes the heat which is what makes the sweat which is a sign of pleasure almost universally. *Sweats*

  5. “I eat badly and don't sleep”

    Damn, now you've got me worried about you!

    Make sure this guy keeps ordering meals for you and have him call up and sing you to sleep every night.
    Also get someone reliable to wash behind your ears, keep your car in proper maintenance and do all your home repairs and vacuuming.

  6. By the way I suspect that your flirting activity has dropped to perilously low levels. You need to correct this with concerted action every day.

  7. sweatytenderloins: “…which is what makes the sweat which is a sign of pleasure almost universally. *Sweats*”

    *smile* That sweet punchline was very nicely delivered!

    And it had chilli flake, jalapeno and chilli tuna in it… beads of sweat forming above the upper lip while eating are not only a sign of pleasure, but an aphrodisiac, right?

    You *should* worry, I am a delicate flower!

    “Make sure this guy keeps ordering meals for you and have him call up and sing you to sleep every night.”

    This made me chuckle with it's specificity. Food and singing… got it!

    “Also get someone reliable to wash behind your ears…”

    Is that you, dad?

    My goodness, you are a bossy little anonymous, aren't you? *laugh*

    Did I teach you this?

    *flirts madly*

    Oh Fern, I practically snorted my iced tea at work I was snickering so.
