I don't even remember the last time I cried during a movie. Elementary school, I believe.

My brother used to make fun of me with unrelenting spitefulness for crying during a movie. It didn't take long for me to figure out how to breathe deeply and quietly to keep from crying.

Jer and I watched The Bucket List tonight. We both ended up in tears. Tears, people. Streaming down my face. And they would not stop no matter how deeply I breathed.

As the movie was turned off and the lights turned on I could hear Jeremy sniffling. He too was touched by a movie.

This silly and quite juvenile act marked a first in our marriage. It's the first time we've ever openly (if that's what you call trying to stifle your emotions) showed signs of sadness during a movie.

I quietly cried. He loudly sniffed.

My brother would have a field day with the two of us.

  1. That movie was a great movie! One I also watched while very pregnant, I began sobbing at the end of that movie and an hour later when I went to bed I was still sobbing! and it had been quite sometime since a movie made me cry!

    Hope all is well!
