What I’ve Learned In My Life So Far

I’ve learned that every time I watch this movie...



...I end up crying. Particularly at the end. That’s where I sob like a baby. Every. Time.

Yes. Yes, I do. Like a baby.

The first time I watched this movie, it was at the theater, and I swear there wasn’t a dry eye in there. Lots of sobbing and sniffling was going on, and lots of tissues were being passed around. We were all a mess. And when my husband and I watched this for the umpteenth time not too long ago, I swore I’d keep it together. I didn’t.

I’m such a sap.

Have you seen the movie? Do you get emotional when watching movies?

That’s all for this week, folks. Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. I always cry in movies, TV shows, etc. I've been doing that since I was a very young child.

    1. It certainly is. I liked the alien more than the people. But that's not surprising about me... :)

    2. Oh, me too. No contest! I don't suspect that's a surprise either :)

    3. Not at all, Wendy! :) Sometimes I wonder if I've subconsciously created another account blog profile and that profile is you! Hahaha... We're just so similar in our...um...cynicism towards humanity!

  5. I'm a huge marshmallow when it comes to sad stories. Heck, I even tear up over Hallmark commercials!

  6. I cried at this movie too, Martha! It's been too long since I've seen it. I really enjoyed your photos of the Kingston area. So much green and water ~ just lovely. When my father was a teenager, he used to deliver milk in bottles from a cart pulled by a horse ~ That was in Charlottetown, PEI. I alway loved the cream at the top of the bottles. Have a happy weekend!

  7. I have seen the movie, but I don't remember if I cried. I am easily moved to tears when I watch movies. Heck, I tear up during some commercials!

    1. A wonderful movie. I recently watched that good-bye scene and teared up all over again! Even though I know how it ends.

  9. I've never seen this movie but maybe I should. I don't watch many movies as I can't sit still.

  10. I've only seen this movie a couple of times and I own it. Too much Kleenex involved.

    1. I love both those films that John Candy was in. He was such a great actor, and such a great guy all around. It's so sad that he died young. The weather is pretty much the same here. Been lazying around the house. Perfect weather for it. I hope your weekend has been great!

  12. When movies are as well done as ET, yes, I need tissue.
