I bawled my eyes out during the last episode of 6 feet under when it showed what happened to all the main characters.

It's not so hot when you don't want to cry at work. That's a hard one.

Adventures In Babywearing

I can sooo relate. I also just had a baby eo everything makes me weep. And Heroes? I was crying at how BAD it is this season. Ugh.



I'm a cryer too...just wait 'til you have kids - your factor gets doubled by default.


I'm the same way. I cry at everything. Even commercials. And it's worse now that I've had a baby. Child in danger? Hint of danger? I bawl. I had to change channels the other night when Law & Order: SVU featured a bunch of kids. Gah!

I share all your triggers, plus a lot of others that seem to make no sense at all. My uncle used to be a mounted police officer, and he carried the American flag once during the opening portion of a traveling rodeo. I cried like a baby, while his wife and daughter stood there looking at me as if I had lost my mind. I also cried during RiverDance, and I'm not Irish. Or a dancer.


We're cryers...plain and simple honey....everyone of us ladies in the family. Hey, I've even caught Joe on a few occasions, though I don't think he'd fess-up to it...'something in my eye' crap. We already know your dad was a notorious cryer....he didn't even try to hide it.

We're also laughers...stomach-holding, tear-flowing, pink-cheeked, breath-gasping laughers. So I guess we cover both ends of the spectrum very nicely....and that's not so bad; plus I think we have a lot of company. ~Mom xo

Oh and we thought we were so tough, women business executives!

I cry at everything - I think its an age thing - I hit the big 50 which of course is the new 40 so great except for crying at commercials, sermons at church,yes, the family scene at political events, and just recently reading Og Mandino's "The Greatest Salesman in the World". The book came out in 1968 and is so powerful - but a tear-jerker for sure!

My only questions is how many cry on the job??? That's the tough one - how can we be taken seriously when we get so emotional?

Love some thoughts...


I never was a crier until becoming a Dad. I agree with Joy - it's unstoppable now. The Beijing Olympics just about dehydrated me to a salt stone.

Personally, I enjoy the trust of a fellow exec being comfortable enough to cry with me. It means you are taking it VERY seriously. ;-)



oh god, i'm also a crier and lots of times people around me don't like the moment every time i cry, but screw them...

i'm glad i'm not the only creature who cries every time someoen dies (movies, books, etc.)


Hi, Jory! I think we met briefly at BlogHer in Boston.
Your blog is wonderful.
And as for the crying? Once when I had PMS I shed a tear when Rodeo was kicked off of "Bret Michaels: Rock of Love" on VH-1. Not a proud moment, to say the least.
