Times I've Cried in Public

Well, the times that stand out, anyway.
  1. 1.
    On the beach, early morning, coffee turning cold, when I wasn't sure of anything.
  2. 2.
    At work, when I first watched *that* Google commercial.
  3. 3.
    On the plane, when I wrote my brother a letter to tell him how much he's appreciated. (I was afraid he didn't know.)
  4. 4.
    At IHOP, hungover, sitting in a booth, the first time my husband called my sister's sons "our" nephews.
  5. 5.
    On the bus, a rainy day, when I listened to the StoryCorps podcast and a kid told his mom he was proud to be her son.
  6. 6.
    At the gym, on a treadmill, when I'd been trying to sweat out the sadness but it didn't work so everything spilled out as tears instead.
  7. 7.
    Almost every time I'm at the airport?
  8. 8.
    Whenever I listen to one of my dad's voicemails and he ends it with "Take care, kid."
