He's the Gingerbread Man

Tall Husband won this adorable Gingerbread Man and gingerbread house at his company's holiday party yesterday.  Thanks Sue for such a great door prize.

One of Tall Husband's favorite sayings is, "You can't catch me, I'm the Gingerbread Man."  This he remembers from childhood, when his English grandmother read the story, "The Gingerbread Man" to him over and over.  To them this was a story about being brave and invincible (never mind the tragic ending for the little gingerbread guy.)  I do believe Tall Husband is invincible and I already knew he is brave.  He has made a great recovery.  In spite of his concussion, and surgical repair of an artery (from a broken nose) he's back to his work, slapping together algorithms and other number crunching feats.  You go, Gingerbread Man!
