I could cry you a river, honest!

I don’t know what it is, if it’s the time of year – which reminds me I should turn on my sun light – or if it’s a lack of hormones, menopause, whatever, but man, I feel like a cry baby.

I’ve always been the type to cry at movies. A dog dies, I cry. I’ve seen the movie before, I know how it ends, and yet, I cry. Just last weekend while having dinner with friends, at a restaurant, I got all teary when I was telling my friend about the scene in “The Abyss” where the girl drowns. Ridiculous, I tell you! As a kid, my dad used to bug me while we watched movies together, going “sniff-sniff” at cry moments. Later on I realised that he was bugging me so that he wouldn’t cry – he was a softy despite his rough … uh… I should just say he was rough/tough.

Last night, Hubby and I watched “Mona Lisa Smile” with Julia Roberts. I think it’s the female version of “Dead Poets Society”. At some point, Hubby looked at me, with a smile on his face offering to get me a tissue. He knows me, and knew I would cry, and I did. The ending touched me. I’m a “whippet” remember? (Don’t know what I’m talking about? Read this).

At times, it sucks to be so girly. I cry when I’m happy and when I’m sad. I must say though, I haven’t cried (knock on wood) for being really sad in a long while. These tears during movies and such don’t count as me being sad. At least I don’t think so. They just happen – it’s like an overflow or something… Maybe I should seek a plumber to have my tear ducks checked or something? I don’t cry pretty either. I get all puffy and blotchy, argh. BUT, I have waterproof mascara! I know that much, at least. I don’t look like a raccoon. A mess yes, but nothing like the last Joker (Heath’s final performance)… I know it’s no big deal, and yet at times it bothers me to cry so easily. I can’t help it. I’ve tried different techniques, when the tears come it’s almost like a tsunami, it hits: bang!

Thinking about this, I’m realising it may not be hormonal since I was like that at a very young age… or my system has been out of whack for longer than I thought?! Hmmm. It’s no big deal, I know, I just wish I could control it a little better, that’s all. Ok I’m done – thank you for your attention - I guess I am a cry baby...

I so know the feeling. Lately I've been crying over commercials! Commercials! And there's absolutely nothing happy or sad about Mr. Clean.

My sister called one day and the movie Flicka was on. I was crying so bad that it took me a while to compose myself.

My boss was telling me about how she drove by her nephew's school and she saw him sitting alone on a bench because his best friend just moved away and I almost cried.

I cry all the time.

I hope you have a lovely weekend.

I think two words describe your "condition": sensitive and caring. The plight of people and animals, even fictional ones, cause you to cry because you care about them.

Regarding the Little Bird comment on my blog: I meant The Little Sparrow, Edith Piaf, and whether you liked her.

Meg: No really, I guess I should rejoice in knowing there is worst than me when it comes to crying... Thank yoU!

GEM: I knew "that" about you! I guess we're just sensitive souls... :-)

Charlie: You're too kind, dear sir. I do care more about animals than people at times - less disapointing...

I enjoyed some of Piaf's work, "La Foule" is my favorite... She was one of a kind. Didn't know her nickname at all.
