So I guess it's just me...
I was talking to Katie today and we got on the subject of tv and we talked about ER last night. She didn't see it, so I was filling her in on some of what happened and I mentioned that I cried. I then went on to say (after knowing she had seen Grey's Anatomy) that part of the reason I was so primed for tears over ER was the fact that I kind of cried during Grey's Anatomy too. She looked at me like I was crazy... "you cried?!?" Well, in my defense, I don't think I actually cried. It was more like just tearing up. And I thought it was pretty legit. Someone's fiance' died for goodness sake, and it was quite touching the way she was trying to deal with it -or was not able to deal with it- and the way her friends were trying to help her through it. Nevermind that I have never seen this show before last night and I know nothing about the characters or any storyline other than what I could piece together in the hour last night. It was still sad!
But yeah, Katie thought I was nuts.
So I guess I'm just a cryer. When did that happen?
I think really it's just the subject matter. Seriously. Losing someone like that scares me to death. I don't know how I would survive losing my husband or one of my babies. And watching people (albeit actors) struggle their way through that really gets to me.
And that would be why I tear up almost every other time I read Kate and Jonathon's blog.
So you can call me crybaby if you want to. I'll prefer to call it empathetic.
