Man’s Man or Dumb Ass?
Tim plays softball and I usually go to sit in the stands as a softball wife. I didn’t go this week but when he came home I was sorry I’d missed it.
He walked into the house at 11:30 with a Big Ol’ Black Eye! I squealed about it, got him ibuprofen and ice and then asked “So this must’ve happened late in the last game, huh?” He said no, not quite, and proceeded to tell me the story of how he was accidentally hit in the cheek during warm up but wanted to stay and play. After the Ambulance EMTs declared him OK he went out to play. He hit 3 home runs in a row and played like a madman.
He’s all proud of himself and says that anyone who quits after they’re hurt is a pansy. I think anyone hit in the head with something that earns attention from an Ambulance should take it easy for the night. Is this a gender difference or a no brainer?
