The past month or so has been extremely challenging, but also very rewarding. Finding ways to provide care for their elderly parents brought Barry and his sister much closer together than they have been in many years. They really worked well together as a team and each respected the opinions and talents of the other and put them to good use. It also unexpectedly provided an opportunity for much more to be shared.
On the Saturday before Thanksgiving when we were moving Barry's parents to their new assisted living facility, we were all working at a frantic pace to move their most important possessions into their new apartment. When the day was done, we all collapsed back at the family home and decided to order out for pizza and celebrate with beer and wine. After several glasses of wine, Joan (Barry's sister) all of a sudden asked Barry why he is wearing women's panties! We later learned that Barry had apparently retucked his shirt in at some point and got it between his panties and his body ... leaving his panties visible when he bent over to lift and carry things. Barry was initially so surprised and shocked by the question that he didn't know what to say. I tried to jump in and save the situation by saying that he does it because he knows I like to see his cute little bottom in nylon. Unfortunately, Joan didn't let it drop at that and the amount of wine and beer we had consumed reduced a lot of our inhibitions. Joan eventually directed Barry to drop his trousers so we could all see his cute little bottom. Surprisingly, he immediately did. That would have been fine except for the fact that his sheer nylon panties not only showed his bottom, but also clearly showed the outline his chastity device.
Joan immediately picked up on that and the conversation took on a whole new level, since the device couldn't be denied and there was no way to explain it away. Before the evening was over, we all learned more about each other than we ever dreamed and probably ever wanted to learn. One of the things I learned was that Joan, who is 5 years older than Barry, was very dominant with Barry during their childhood. She is also the dominant partner in her long-term relationship with Carol, who was also part of the family team and present that evening. It also eventually came out that I spank Barry and the Joan spanks Carol.
Needless to say, I suspect we all went to bed feeling very surprised and/or confused. In the morning, we had breakfast and proceeded to pack up and head home without any further discussion. When we came together with Barry's parents for Thanksgiving, there was no time for any private discussions.
I am still trying to process all of the dynamics of that evening, as well as some of the details that we each shared with each other. I'm sure there will be further conversation, but I'm not sure how it will start.
Aren't families unique and fun?
