    what is the strangest thing you have ever cried about?


    just wondering, for those emotional types.

    in 8th grade i cried in the middle of a geometry test. lol.

    more recently i cried to an HBO documentry about an american doctor that voluntered in the chernobyl area performing surgeries on deformed children. (it was the first ever time i had taken clomid, and had recently broken up with a girl.)

    <<tear>>

    i opened up, its your turn.

    being a firefighter....... 9/11 got the best of me.. Also, being a Marine, watching these young kids going to Iraq & come back home as men. Those are tears of joy though..

    Not weird, but off gaurd response to an observation.

    I am sitting at a booth at the Old Country Buffet. I am with my 3 yrs old daughter and my wife. The two of them can make me nuts after a while. They both go on and on and on....My daughter is in a phase...public scenes of uncountrolable whining. My wife...well never mind. I'm thinking to myself that line I used in another thread: "is THIS my life...not how I imagined it would turn out. Would the two of you just be quite (shut up) and just leave me alone." I have the usual stressed out and irritated disposition that I often get under these conditions and circumstances

    In walks a man, a woman and their daughter. Their daughter, appears late teen early twenties, is dressed in a pretty Sunday dress. The Dad and Mom are all smiles and they are a happy family. Thing is; the girl has some sort of physically handicapping and diasbeling condition. She walks with a hoble and is hunched over. It sounded as if it also effected her communication skills. I'm at a loss for the condition. But it was very drastic and dramatic and quite disabeling. It appeared a birth type of defect.

    The father has to physically help his daughter through the restaraunt to the table and to her seat. He has to get all her things in order for her. He has to cut up her food for her, etc etc. All the while he is sitting straight across from me two booth down within eye and ear shot.

    The man catches my eye. He casually goes about his business smiling and enjoying himself. By this time I am beside myself with shame and guilt....ealizing how blessed I am with three healthy children. One of which I just moments ago was resenting for her acting out and aggrevating me. I am overcome with emotion and begin to swell up just to the point that the viscocity of the tears is on my lids is all that hold them contained from pouring down my face. The man looks up again and glances at me...not sure if he can see the tears swelling in my eyes. I smile at him...he smiles back.

    In comes my daughter from the buffet line, running and jumping and disregarding her mother trying to guide her through the booths and tables. These very same things, just moments ago we such a burden and a resentment. She jumps up on the table, knocks over some food and drink. Slams into me and climbs over me into the seat beside me in the booth.

    The bustle of her climbing over me knocked the tears loose from my lids and they fall down my face. Pouring well down passed my chin and up under to my neck.

    She glances up at me to gauge my state of irritation at her new 'burdensome' behavior to see me wiping tears from my face and neck.

    Brianna: Daddy...what's wrong?
    Daddy: Nothing is wrong angel.
    Brianna: Why are you sad?
    Daddy: I'm not sad honey.
    Brianna: Oh...those are happy tears? What for?
    Daddy: Your the best!!!
    Brianna: Thank you Daddy. Your the best too?

    I hug her and turn my glance upward from looking down at her. I make dead on eye to eye contact with the man sitting across from me...he's still smiling as big as ever. I smile back at him ever moreso sincere.

    it's a great story, b5150. Too many times people don't appreciate all the good they have in a life. I'm guilty of it too...

    B5150, have you ever heard of the book "Dads and Daughters" by Joe Kelly? Excellent book, and I think you'd appreciate it just the right way.

    My son who was 4 at the time came to me and asked "Dad are you going to get drunk and miss X-Mas"
    I shrugged it off... as I was proud to have spent so much money on toys all the time and glady told everyone at the bar this...

    My first sober X-Mas the same boy now 6 came to me before bed and hugged me and said "Dad thanks for X-Mas" of course I cried...
    What was strange that several hours later I began crying when realizing it was the first time I had cried since getting sober 4 months earlier...

    Considering that I am girl, I am not much to cry - I kind of wish that I could cry easier sometimes...... I do remember that when my son was little and would get upset about something (like all babies do) and I would always hug him and say "don't worry, Mom's got you". When he was about a year and a half old, I tripped on something and fell and my eyes watered up with pain and my kid waddled over and hugged me and said "don't worry, Mom, John's gotcha". It was that moment that I realized just what an awesome repsonsibility it is to raise a decent caring human being and we were on the right road.

    Oh, and I cry whenever any AM boys are unhappy with ATW

    After single parenting for 8 years, I have to say that graduations and achievement award ceremonies got me. Also, when kids move out of the house... it's a very emotional time. One of mine moved totally out and the other one moves out once per year to go to college. It's always a bummer for me

    I cried because my wife and I got into an argument because I can't remember short term stuff. She'll ask me to do things and I simply forget. It's not like I blow her off, I just can't remember. My short term memory is crap and it's really frustrating. She got really frustrated with me and I said "I can't do anything about it honey, I just don't know why I can't remember what you tell me." I ended up crying about it, which is NOT me. FYI -- I'm only freakin 27!!!!!!!

    That movie was Memento. Pretty good movie. FYI -- my short term isn't THAT bad. And, no I didn't smoke large quantities of weed back in the day. But I might have, uh... smoked some once in awhile... ok... next topic... lol

    I wasn't suggesting it was THAT bad. It just poopped into my mind when I imagined the pain that that could cause someone in reality. To whatever degree it has caused you some, and I sympathize.

    If we are painstaking about this phase of our development, we will be amazed before we are half way through. We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness. We will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it. We will comprehend the word serenity and we will know peace. No matter how far down the scale we have gone, we will see how our experience can benefit others. That feeling of uselessness and self-pity will disappear. We will lose interest in selfish things and gain interest in our fellows. Self-seeking will slip away. Our whole attitude and outlook upon life will change. Fear of people and of economic insecurity will leave us. We will intuitively know how to handle situations which used to baffle us. We will suddenly realize that God is doing for us what we could not do for ourselves. - Big Book of AA

    I watched a documentry on Discovery last night on the North Hollywood bank robbery/shoot out that happened a few years back. I've seen plenty of documentries on this, but last night I was a balling little bitch. As they played the actual recordings of the downed officers requesting help, and the dispatchers trying to maintain radio professionalism, just gets me. Officers and civilians were shot and trying to take cover as ricocheting bullets kept striking them for 30 to 40 minutes. Rescue teams and paramedics were standing by, but unable to enter the scene due to the heavy fire power. You could hear the voices crack at certain times by dispatchers, and downed officers sounding very scared as they were losing blood and ready to go unconcious.

    If I had to guess, it probably had something to do with sitting on my testicles...but I can't remember anything. Any time I've cried it hasn't been over something strange, but then again, I'm not on Clomid and never have been
