Pearls for Christmas

So, just around when the Leafs* had just won their game tonight, Wade turns to me and says, "So if I get you that** toothbrush for Christmas, that'll be your jewellery?"

I gave him a very puzzled look.

Wade explains, "Because it'll make your teeth pearly white" and flashes me a big grin.

I laughed.

*Yes, the plural of leaf is leaves, but when referring to the hockey team, the correct reference is the "Leafs".
**I had asked for a specific and expensive electric toothbrush for Christmas, at the recommendation of my dental hygienist, who is also a friend. He initially thought I was nuts to ask for that for Christmas, but when he realized that I don't always want flashy gifts, and sometimes what I think is a fun gift is also a practical gift, he's thinking of actually getting it for me for Christmas. What can I say? I value clean teeth!

Hahaha! I'm not sure if a toothbrush can replace jewelry as a Christmas present - but your FI is quite clever! Cute story! :)

By the way, I use the Sonicare toothbrush and it's great. I highly recommend it!

I love this story, it made me smile so much. But not in such a pearly way as I imagine you'll be smiling soon!

Wade always says funny things like that to make me laugh.

And as much as I looooove jewellery (and I really do), I don't need jewellery for every occassion. I got a big shiny ring last year, so I'm good for now :)
