Perhaps it's four years of androgen deprivation therapy and the subsequent lack of testosterone circulating in my body, but I am so much more emotional than I used to be.
Last night we decided to stay in, have a nice dinner and watch a movie.
We split a few pounds of king crab legs, a bottle of wine and laid back to watch
"Nights in Rodanthe" with Richard Gere and Diane Lane.
The movie itself was terrible. It was a poor attempt to recreate some chemistry between these two that can be found in the movie from 2002, "Unfaithful". Without revealing too much, it takes a rather sad twist at the end, and even as bad as it was, there I was with tears in my eyes. Mary asked "Are you crying?". My response, "Can you believe it? As bad as this movie is, here I am getting all emotional about it!"
So now, here I sit, working on a Power Point deck for our church auction next Saturday. I am shuffling through iTunes at the same time and on comes "I'll Be" by Edwin McCain. Here's the video. I find the whole song to be beautiful, such that it makes me cry nearly every time I hear it. Click on the link, and pay particular attention to the chorus.
