    When was the last time you cried?

    Was it tears of joy? Happiness? Fear? Pain?

    What was the situation?

    I cried tears of disbelief and relief just a few days ago after reuniting with someone that was very special to me when I was a kid. Last time I saw him was when I was 7. This is someone that I have been looking for, for most of my life, so I can thank him. He's an old man now, but he will always be someone I look up to and respect highly.

    When my abusive father died. I don't know whether it was grief or relief.
    You're just trying to start an argument to show how smart you are.

    This may sound sappy......

    I'm VERY close with my daughter; my only blood child, it's been a soul-stirring experience seeing traits of mine, my mother's, her mother's, her mother's family, all jell in her. I'd watch her run across the park playground, innocent exuberance on two long legs, and I'd wonder what I did right to be so blessed.........

    The joy and excitement in her face when I come home from work has made all the crap of the last 8+ years worthwhile. We can almost read each other's minds at times!

    It was a cheesy action movie that did it; we watched it together on VHS (last movie before the VCR crashed, about a year and a half ago). When it got to the last ten minutes, the saccharine melodrama of the hero dying and saying goodbye to his child got us both choking up.

    We watched.....

    ....

    Armageddon. There, I said it.

    When Bruce Willis said goodbye to Liv Tyler, we both felt the tug, and hugged each other close. She got my shirt wet, crying all over herself.

    Everytime I try to help "someone" and all they do is yell at me while telling me that I treat them like they don't know anything. Getting very old very quickly.
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    Really cried... when we put the dog down and the week thereafter... about a month ago. I'm kind of a sissy in general, but watching the dog die REALLY got me going.

    Then today I saw a bumper sticker that read "Lord, make me the kind of person that my dog thinks I am". That managed to get a few tears out of me tonight.

    I have no idea. Perhaps when my brother passed away in 2000 or sometime during my marriage falling apart.

    Kind of cheeseball, but I was in tears all night when I found out Laurent Fignon died. I enjoyed watching him race, and that influenced me as a young kid to pick up cycling.

    about a month ago when visiting my mom and little sisters (large age difference between them and I). My mother was shouting at my 6 year old sister and it brought back 18 years worth of negative energy and emotion. I had to leave the house and go for a walk I frequently took in high school when feeling down.

    I think last week from a heartful movie.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    I cry all the time. I'm very sentimental. But I rarely admit it or let people see me crying.

    I cry hard when I watch talent shows. I used to have my talents but things in my life discouraged me from pursuing them (but it's my own fault when it comes down to it, although having absolutely no support from parents, friends, and jealously of a former wife might have had something to do with it). So, when I see others show off their talents, I feel sorry for myself and cry a lot when I think about where I could be now if I only took a different direction. Oh, well.

    I also cry when really bad-talented people get tons of credit but the truly amazing people are overlooked due to popularity-contest nuances and politics.

    6 months ago. An old friend died from cancer. She fought it hard for about 4 years.

    The last time I cried before that was when I last saw her, about a year ago. I was visiting AUS from my current location and when I was saying goodbye to her we had a big hug and looked at each other and said something like "I guess this is really goodbye" - we both knew it was probably going to be the last time we would meet.

    Awwww...screw that. I'm crying now.

    About maybe 2 months ago. My mom called to tell me she heard a cat screech in her laundry dryer. I went over and looked into the vent tube of the laundry dryer and saw the body of a small orange kitten. It had somehow crawled inside and got caught when my mom turned the dryer on. With trembling hands I pulled the body out. I went home after that and bawled like a child.
    Blinky the Minpin (my dog) hopped up on my lap sensing that I was upset and licked my face. He's usually a hellraiser but he was concerned that evening.
    Something Siu posted later that evening finally cheered me up. She was defending herself by protesting, saying that she didn't cut herself with her knives.
