I'm not the only one

So I'm relieved to see that I'm not the only one who gets overwhelmed when presented with good news.

I remember when I got a new bicycle for my birthday. When I came into the living room and saw it leaning against the fireplace, I was rooted to the spot. I burst into tears and literally couldn't speak I was that choked up. And I was 46 at the time. (Okay, that last part is a lie.)

Watch this and tell me the truth: did you cry, laugh or do both?

I saw this too and it made me laugh! I don't really know this actress (I guess I'm too old) but it made me love her. And she was a good sport for letting it be shown on national television!

I laughed so hard when I saw this (with her, not at her). I, too, thought she was an incredibly good sport.

Yeah...okay. let me be the lone dissenter...I thought it was goofy.

Lesa said...

Laughed! That felt good!

I had the same reaction when I saw a whale for the first time. Sobbed like a baby. Thank goodness no one filmed it.

I didn't cry. I did laugh. And thought: GOSH I wish I looked that pretty when I bawled like a baby.

Deb & Pam - something you should know about me is I NEVER cry at anything to do with me. Cannot. It's a curse. But I can cry like a baby at a horse movie. Or a dog movie. Or a horse RACE. Freaky.

Great clip - made me smile.
