She'd been doing so well lately, but Jill absolutely refused to go shopping with us today. It may have been the money, it may have been the embarrassment, it may have been my own fault. I was encouraging her to go dressed as Jill by reminding her that we'd be having her try on a lot of things. I may have scared her. Anyway, as much as we prefer doing things the easy way, Jill required the hard way today. She's been hogtied for an hour and a half now and won't get released until she's ready for shopping. If she's not ready today, I'm sure she'll be ready by tomorrow. Sometimes, its tough to be mean, but I have to admit there is a real thrill to breaking through her resistance and such a feeling of power. We really did try and give her the easy option first. Hopefully, we get the shopping done today.
