My hubby, Sexy Neck, tore his Achilles one week ago. He had surgery and is now recovering at home. He is a man with crutches. He cannot carry his coffee cup or his cereal bowl. He can’t put his foot on the ground. He can’t go pee without grabbing his crutches. He can’t shower nor do stairs easily.
Do you know what he has decided to do? Laugh. Yes, laugh! He is probably one of the wittiest people I know.
He laughs that he is officially “old” with his old man/weekend warrior injury.
He laughs because all he does all day is heal his connective tissue and grow facial hair (for Movember)!
He laughs because he moves from the couch to the bed and vice versa. When you ask what he did during the day, he will come up with some funny joke.
I laugh because he has decided to shave his head just because he wants something to do!
I think we should all be a person with a crutch who has time to hear their children’s many stories and give “fake” gold medals and flowers to their wives when they do the laundry or load the dishwasher.
I love you Sexy Neck in good times and in bad!
