All who have accomplished great things have had a great aim, have fixed their gaze on a goal which was high, one which sometimes seemed impossible....

He can be so stubborn....

Seriously, I thought I was stubborn but my husband is by far worse.

At about 12:20 last night I was in the middle of a dream about the book I had fallen asleep reading. In my dream I hear a door close and someone walking up our stairs. I started to stir and begin to realize it's my husband coming in from his 11:00 double hockey games and Queeny. I mumbled a hello to him and then I hear a "Hunny, I have a surprise for you". Ooo..maybe it's the Ice Cream I asked him to bring home LAST WEEKEND. I sit up, rub my eyes and look at him. He smiles at me...WHAT THE FECK!?!?! My dear husband is sporting a lovely semi-toothless grin. I'm not even mad. I'm impressed. This is the second time in less than two years my husband has needed dental work due to a hockey related incident.
He precedes to explain how this happened. He was battling for the puck with another guy when the guys stick got him in the mouth breaking off huge pieces of his two front teeth and splitting his lip.

Great. I do the usual "Every great hockey player gets hurt" speech that I usually give when he comes home with black eyes, bruises and broken teeth and go on about the financial issue these incidents can raise. We just shelled out $200 a year and a half ago to fix one of his teeth after he got a stick in the mouth. He spent our Anniversary in sun glasses due to a black eye.

HIM: Don't I look hot though?
ME: Ew, no. We'll call the dentist tomorrow. Does it hurt?
HIM: No. Just my lip.
ME: I guess you will start wearing a mouth guard now, right?
HIM: No. I don't want to be the only guy wearing a mouth guard. I'll look stupid.
ME: That's ridiculous. So you'll just keep spending the money to fix your teeth instead of wearing a guard or mask?
HIM: Yep, I think I'll have to add some cash for fixing my broken teeth into our budget every month. Just in case...
ME: Oh Joy.
