Origin of Southern Sir

By | November 6, 2013


It has been a hectic week to say the least. Trying to get back into the day to day routine, getting caught up with what is happening at work. Diving into some freelance jobs I have acquired and just trying to resolve the fact that it will be 3 weeks before I see little flower again.

We truly had a wonderful time it was wonderful to be with her. While I was there she had planned on having her wisdom teeth removed. We had planned it that way so I would be there to help take care of her. On the appointed day we went to the dentist and I explained to her before hand that upon leaving there we would be going right to the pharmacy to fill whatever Rx he wrote for her. She tried to shush it away but having been there myself I knew what could be.

Upon arriving back at her house while the Novocaine was still in effect I had her take one of the pain pills and at the proper time thereafter. She slept most of the time and I fed her a liquid diet of protein shakes.

A couple of days after she called me a task master for keeping her to such a strict routine, shortly afterwards she did admit that it was my strictness that kept it from hurting her more then it could have but that she also seemed to be up and around and feeling better quicker then most people had expected.

I digress though that is not what this post is truly about.

Last Saturday I put up a video for my Shibari Saturday and it was noted by someone of the lack of my southern drawl.
It is true I do lack a southern accent and upon little flowers request she asked me to refrain from using one. I told the person who asked about it that I would write about the origin of my name.

I was born and raised in the Catskill mountains of NY state, beautiful country to be sure and yes there is much more to NY state then just NY City and Long island.

As a kid my family traveled to the south quite a bit, I loved it there. I couldn’t get enough of grits and other southern cooking; then add in the fact that Southern whiskey has always been my drink of choice. It was almost as if I was born in the wrong place as I felt more at home in the south then I did in my northern home.

When I was 22 I came south on vacation and I decided to stay. I gained employment working for a landscaping company owned by of course southerners. After working there for a time the owner George told me one day that I was alright for a Yankee, that he had never met one like me before being different then most northerners.

It was then he told me I was more southern and deserved to be made an honorary southerner.

Fast forward a number of years when I began exploring my Dom side I met a woman online and we began talking. I was writing on a journal site at the time and we would get into long discussions about BDSM and D/s. As things progressed between her and I; she began exploring her submissive side and I more of my Dom. Soon we became Sir and pet.

I didn’t have a name per se and one evening we were talking on the phone and she said that I was very polite and that was one thing that had attracted her to me. She said if there was ever someone who was truly a southern gentleman it was me.

It was shortly after that she decided I was Southern Sir.

Since George had dubbed me as an honorary southerner years prior and her assessment of me I began using the Southern Sir moniker and it has stuck ever since.

    Very endearing story Sir! Your posts have always depicted you as a true Southern Gentleman. Thanks for sharing a little history with us.

    I’m so happy for you and little flower, she was lucky to have you there to care for her after her mouth surgery. Yuck… poor thing, I’m sure that was no fun for her, but I bet your presence made it more tolerable for her. And I’m sure you both are counting the minutes till the next time together.

      Thank you Mynx, glad you enjoyed this.
      Little flower was actually quite a good patient and listened to Dr. Sir quite well.
      2 weeks and 1 day till we see each other again…but who is counting.

        Lets see… 2 weeks and one day that puts you with little flower the weekend prior to Thanksgiving. I hope you have lots of vacation days left, and that you are spending the holidays with her. I know all to well how it feels to be apart from the one you love, but thankfully I only have the work weeks to deal with, but a weekend only Sir/husband/father still seems not enough sometimes. But the OMG missed you sex is awesome! ;D

          I am very lucky that the company I work for will be closed that week so I will be there with her for the entire week. We will be spending Thanksgiving together which I am looking forward to very much.
          You know all to well how much fun the reunion can be. πŸ™‚

    As a born and bred Southerner, I can only imagine how much you must have impressed that man for him to make you an honorary Southerner. That just isn’t done. You can live in the South, in the same TOWN, for 30 years and still be considered a Yankee or a fur-i-ner in some places. Glad you’re one of us now, though… πŸ™‚

    Ouch to the wisdom teeth removal. Hope Little Flower is feeling better now.

    P.S. Next time, can we have the southern accent for giggles? πŸ˜‰

      She is doing much better and has pretty much fully recovered.
      While hearing my southern accent would be good for a giggle or two it might well lead to other calamities. Since little flower has heard my southern accent it is now on her list of hard limits and it is non-negotiable. :-/

    It’s interesting how we often feel more at home in unknown places. I loved reading about the origins of your moniker. Thank you, SSir…

      I have noticed that as well, times being visiting a place I have never been yet I have felt comfortable there and right at home.

    I agree with the above, lovely story indeed πŸ™‚
    I am glad to hear that your little flower is feeling better, I’ve heard getting those wisdom teeth out can be just awful (not looking forward to it….)
