When was the last time you cried?

When was the last time you cried – not in a sad way

A radio show i listen to in the morning came up with this question of “When was the last time you cried or got teary eyed?”

I found it interesting because i get choked up about weird stuff. I recall being a pre-teen and always making fun of my mom and sister and when they cried at Halmark movies. As i grew older i made it my mission to never ever cry.

But i would always get choked up at Parades. Yup. Parades. Seeing all the people marching by, twirling batons etc etc etc… Even when i marched in parades i’d get a little choked up as well.

Most recently we were downtown watching the Tuba Christmas (which is awesome by the way – find it in your city if you can) and i was getting choked up. Throat was tight, eyes were wet.. It’s just weird.

Never understood it, but hey, it’s a part of me!

  1. LLB saw a commercial for Titanic in 3D and started bawling…
    The apple certainly doesn’t fall far from the tree, does it?

    So glad you got to see Tuba Christmas! LLB played in the one at the Kennedy Center this year (she’s played in it in past years, too) and loved it.

    If you get choked up at parades, wait until you see the VMI parades!! You’ll be sobbing because your nephew is participating…

  2. WOW..my children and grandchildren playing great music on their instruments, parades and performances they were part of and nailed it, as well as their weddings and music and scholarship awards!

    Of course sappy movies is a given!

    Well, you all I guess it is genetic!
