Apparently stress not only makes me want to eat ice cream, it also makes me slightly emotional.
A conversation over dinner
Me: So I was watching Extreme Home Makeover while I ate dinner last night, and I cried.
Friend: Really? Why?
Me: It was really moving. I always cry at that show - even when I say I won't.
Friend: Like, REAL tears, crying?
Me: I said I cried.
Friend: I don't remember the last time I cried at a TV show. Maybe the finale of The Wonder Years.
Me: OH MY GOSH! I remember that episode! It was so sad - the narrator voice talked about what happened to each character as they grew up. And Kevin and Winnie never did end up together...
Friend: Are you crying?
Me: We can talk about something besides TV.
