To get out of my cycle of malfunction and restore my reputation as a devoted and productive slave, the best approach may be to focus on technique. Sort of like this phase of the NFL Season, when teams hold "voluntary" workouts for players on the bubble to up their game.
Rest assured, I will not be one of those prima donnas who stay home while trying to renegotiate their cushy contracts. I've dropped too many balls, and my "grade" surely has suffered. And all that time on the disabled list didn't help, did it.
Let's hope Mistress isn't impatient about my ability to get back to form, and considering drafting some hungry young buck to replace me. I'm not quite ready to go out to pasture just yet! I hate to think that I could be relegated to mere household chores, like delivering the mail to Mistress, rather than also sharing in responsibility for her sexual satisfaction.
