The tears are extra salty.
Quote:
Lonely nation: 2 in 3 Americans feel more alone than ever before, many admit to crying for first time in years
[^]

While I was a weeper in my twenties ... well, histrionics were tres chic in the '60's ... I seemed to have gone dry after that.

Sixteen years ago, in the most intense part of radiation/chemo, I was at home, and, as a thunderstorm came up, I felt a catharsis coming on ... at last, I thought, i'll have a good cry, and feel a lot better ... just as I teetered on the edge of pathos, a Thai talking lizard (tookay) bellowed his nocturnal mating call [^] which can, and did, sound a lot like "fcuk you" Smile | :)

So, I just crawled back to my neuroses, unpurged, reminding myself that "those whom the gods would destroy, they first drive mad."

Tookay: don't try this at home: the powerful, hard to escape from, bite carries a risk of severe infection: [^]
«One day it will have to be officially admitted that what we have christened reality is an even greater illusion than the world of dreams.» Salvador Dali
