Lying in bed last night I asked my Master if I had been a good slave.
He said "You are the best slave. I don't even know why you are such a good slave for me."
I got a naughty impulse then, and said "I don't either. It would be a lot easier to be a half-assed slave, wouldn't it?"
He casually commented "Then I would have to beat your ass. Not in a nice way."
I guess I know why I work so hard to be a good slave after all.
Sometimes I just like to be reminded.
