Do I look like I'm crying? Spoiler: I'm not.
For those who don't know me IRL, I'm a cryer. Kristen Bell and I have that in common. If I'm not between a 3 and 7 on the emotional scale, bring on the tissues (or toilet paper because Kristen and I don't have money in common), but lately I've been crying over weird stuff, even for me**.
Let me give you some examples of things that have made me cry in the past few days:
The way the author chose to describe blueberries bursting in pancake batter, the smell of bread wafting through the house and the feeling in the pit of your stomach right before you see someone you're madly in love with get off of a plane in "The Weird Sisters." This book is amazing. Obviously.
"All Who Remain" by Beware of Darkness and "Another Love" by Tom Odell. These are both pretty sad songs so I guess it makes sense, but I included them anyway because you should love with them with me.
The photos in Brooke's post right here. I don't know when beaches and lovely weekends became worthy of a cry sesh, but whatevs.
The fact that every time I start crying (even silently) Ziggy freaks out and jumps all over me. This is slightly inconvenient because she's 50 pounds of pure sympathy, but it's too adorable. Tears.
This wonderful post by Jessi. Follow her. She's awesome.
The realization that one of my three W-2s is probably in a dumpster somewhere. Ah, the frustration cry. It's not unlike when you're a child and you're too short to reach the lollipop on the counter so your face turns bright red and you cry until an adult helps you, except it doesn't have the same result when you're 24.
The budding romance between Leslie Knope and Ben Wyatt. It's like Pam and Jim all over again. Every awkward convo gets me all misty eyed.
And many more I either can't think of or refuse to admit to.
What weird things have made you cry lately?
**No, I'm not PMSing and no, I'm not pregnant. The end.
