I cry during the average Cheerio commercial, so I'd bet on it.
Lol that's so me - I swear to goddess one day I tear'ed up over something in a commercial and it turned out to be a tampon commercial I laughed till I cried again
My eyes moistened, but I carried on reading. He has made me put the book down and go off and have a quiet moment on my own 3 times: Duma Key, DT7, Mr Mercedes.
oh My Goodness yes Duma Key had that effect on me so many times and
when Eddie died in the dark tower series
, I can't even tell you, I was with Suzy, I had managed to keep reading, in spite of tears, but when I read the" I like it because it is bitter, and it is my heart" I actually felt myself start keening inside my chest, a suppressed but deep sob- I had to reprimand myself and insist that this is not a real human being, I reminded myself I didn't cry this hard when my grandmother died(ah, but she was half machine and miserable by then- it was a relief for both of us when she went) I got under control but Duma had me all over crying happy tears, sad tears, oh my god how can god( or Steve) let things like this happen? Why? Why,lord, why?

My wife laughs at me. A Marine, and 20+ years in Law Enforcement. "You Crack Me Up!" she'd say. "You are such a Hard Ass in uniform... you project that Marine Jawline and no one messes with you. Firm but Fair."

But at home with the kids, reading books, watching movies, listening to music, even Art or getting caught by a sunset..... my eyes will mist up.
A great passage in a book, a really good part in a movie and my eyes will leak and my nose might even run. Nah.. I don't sob.... I'm not a big baby...
"It's your feminine side trying to escape," the wife says, "It's why you are so good with woodworking and writing." Then she busts out laughing again.
;-D

Yes it did. I fell hopelessly in love with these characters. I skipped through a lot of the passages focusing on Lee. To me, the love story was absolutely riveting.

Same here. While I enjoyed the 11/22/63 hulu miniseries, the heart of the book for me is with Jodie and the characters there and of course the love story. Oh how I wish Sadie and Jake could've been together, I'd go back yesterday if I were Jake
