Allow me an anecdote about the last time I cried: I was reading a story in USA Today (okay, I'm a loser already), about urban kids who organize dog fights. This one kid was a reformed dog-fighter, who swore he would never fight his dog again, he said, "When my dog would win, I'd hug him. When he would lose, I'd get mad at him. Now I get to hug him whenever I want." I seriously teared up in the airport reading that.

Oh, tearing up? I do that about every other day. Songs on the radio, certain ads, you name it.

I was thinking full-out making-noise-and-nose-running crying.

I love anecdotes.:)

IKEA- I was just there twice last weekend to get a rug for our new hardwood floor in the LR. Maybe I'll call you with a shopping list:)

Blue Castle said...

I'm so jealous that you are going to Ikea. I drool over their website often.

And, I can't believe you haven't cried in that long. Wow, I'm a wuss I guess. :)

AJ said...

So why would it have been funnier if I teared up about a reformed dog fighter. I guess I am heartless

Noel said...

So if you are shopping at Ikea tomorrow, does that mean we crossed paths on I-94 as I was returning to Fargo? My wife and daughter T went to the Twin Cities from Fargo this afternoon for the Resolve event, so there may have been a chase. No wonder there was so much traffic!
