I think that one of the biggest misconceptions; one of the biggest fallacies about the BDSM lifestyle concerns "roles." We tend to fall into and then perpetuate the foolish notion that people take on or fulfill or live a particular role within their relationship -- and then that's it! Submissive, Dominant, Switch, Top, Bottom, Master, Slave, whatever; we too often fall into the trap of one word labels and descriptions. It doesn't work; can't work. We are, each of us, multi-faceted humans -- and we each play a variety of roles in our own lives and in the lives of those to whom we relate.
Yes, I've worn plenty of hats along the way. Right now, though, as we go through the rehab and recovery from this knee replacement -- I am coach and cheerleader and, let us not forget ... chauffeur. We think He would be just fine to drive, now that He's off all the prescription pain medications. His right leg is just fine, after all. But for now, I remain, as I have been through these last four weeks, His personal driver. Just call me, "James."
