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!
