First of all: MckMama - I am so NOT glad that you are back.
Now, down to business.
I have NEVER said, "Fallons do NOT cry."
I have NEVER said, "Yeah, I am NOT a weeper."
The mantra in our home is NOT:
SUCK IT UP
Fallons are held to a higher standard
Deal with it
There is no crying!
It is acceptable to cry only when you are bleeding or afire.
I have NEVER prided myself on my innate ability to hold back the tears.
Billy Two Swords has NEVER accused me of being born withOUT tear ducts.
Billy Two Swords has NEVER accused me of having ice water course through my veins.
So yesterday, at a rather uneventful Sunday church service, I did NOT slobber for an entire hour.
I have NOTHING going on in my life that would cause me to regress into weepy, slurpy, crybaby toddlerhood.
My mascara was NOT running down my face.
I did NOT have a tissue, therefore I did NOT wipe my nose on Captain Jake Sparrow's shirt.
Seven people at church did NOT tell me, "You do NOT look like crap."
And some of my friends did NOT tell me, "Suck it up. You're a Fallon."
Did NOT happen.
