I don't know what the hell it is. Turning 60? Ten years of living with cancer? Ten years of living with cancer treatments? Whatever it is I've turned into such an emotional and sentimental guy.
That's right. I'm a big blubbering cry baby.
It happens mostly when I'm watching TV. The other night I was watching The Newsroom on HBO. (great show) We get to the last 5 minutes. The soundtrack swells playing "I'll Fix You" by Coldplay. (great song) And the news team swings into action to break into regular programming and carries off brilliant coverage of a breaking story. Right. But I can hardly see this because my eyes are brimming with tears. And this is the second time I've seen this episode!
You think that's bad? I've started to cry during commercials. You heard me. Used to be the crying was done on the other side of the screen like by that guy in the pic up there. A couple of months ago Accura came out with a commercial that simply made me a basket case each time it came on...
And lately Procter and Gamble has been running an ad that just tears me apart...
So there you have it. Not much funny about this post, eh? Well, except for my wife.
Yeah, she thinks I'm hysterical.
