Ugly Cry

{I know Tara just posted about her ugly cry last week.  But I had my own little run in with it this weekend and I feel the need to share...}

I should begin by saying that I'm normally not an emotional person.  I didn't cry at my own wedding.  But the pregnancy hormones have certainly messed with me recently...

Over the weekend, Mr. BUB sweetly offered to take me on a date to the movies.  We purchased tickets for New Year's Eve and went along our merry way.  In all honesty, I should have known there would be a problem during the previews.  The trailer for The Vow came on and I found myself tearing up.  I leaned over to Mr. BUB and whispered, "We're never going to see that!"

The movie started and all was well...for the first few minutes.  Then a sad scene came on.  And the tears began to fall.  The next thing I know, I'm in the middle of a full-fledged ugly cry and reaching for the napkins that were originally intended for buttery popcorn fingers.

Mr. BUB leaned in and whispered, "Are you okay?"  I sobbed and nodded yes.  Then, the sweet man who pledged to spend his life with me looked me in the eyes and said, "Babe...Your crying face- it's terrible."  This obviously sent me into a mixture of laughter and tears.

I ended up crying through about 90% of the movie.  After it was over, I rushed to the bathroom to assess the damage.  I quickly confirmed that my nose would put Rudolph's to shame and let's face it- my eyes looked like they belong to a pothead.  I rationalized that we were going straight home and won't see anyone we know.

I walked out of the bathroom and was immediately introduced to one of Mr. BUB's basketball buddies and his girlfriend.  I'll discuss my theory on how Mr. BUB automatically knows anyone over 6'5" at a later time.  We talked to them for about 15 minutes, and I'm sure they left talking about Mr. BUB's crazy wife with the red face.

As we walked out, I turned to Mr. BUB and said, "Wow, that was really embarrassing.  I can't believe you couldn't hold yourself together during the movie."

...and this is why I'm sure that was the last date Mr. BUB takes me on until after the baby gets here...

Aww! Darn those hormones! I have an ugly cry. I sob, snort, and sniff. My face turns red and puffy. haha. I'm a mess!

Ashlee Miller said...

Awww... You have a legitimate excuse to cry! Hormones are a girls worst friend.

Katie said...

Hahaha!! That's too funny. This is why I refuse to see many movies at the theater. Although I'd think that that movie would be safe. Apparently not!

Amanda said...

Don't worry we all have the ugly cry! I cry through most movies, but because I'm a crier (I cry at everything!!!), I've learned how to ugly cry without making noise lol.

Haha!! That's awesome. I love it. I have found myself crying at every single baby thing that is emotional. My hubs made me watch some indie film called "The Other Woman" with Natalie Portman and part of the film is about how the baby died of SIDS and she thought she was responsible for it. I was like "Why are you making me watch this movie?!?!?!!" I was so mad!!! I almost cried a few time during the Muppets. Pregnancy does some crazy crap to you!!!

Nicole Rene said...

Bahahahaha you are hysterical but honestly you shouldn't be embarrassed. I cry during commercails even though I am not pregnant... Lol!!! :)

Mandy@OrangeAutumn said...

LOL.. omg that's too funny!! I SOBBED while watching The Notebook with my boyfriend. It was honestly SUPER embarrassing. Was "New Years" good?

Rebekah said...

Yay! I can finally comment!! :)

Haha, you poor thing. I'm SUPER emotional. Over everything. I cry at commercials! Was the movie good despite your crying episode??

Anna said...

Oh bless your heart! I'm kind of a crier anyway but right before my wedding my sister and I went and saw Taken and I ugly cried through the whole thing. She offered midway to take me home but I refused because I had to make sure the girl was saved...

It's typical of me to cry during regular shows and commercials and my hubby just laughs at/with me :)

Jessica Renee said...

Awww I totally laughed at your hubby's last comment but knowing me, that would've upset me even more! lol.. Sorry you had to break out the ugly cry in public AND see people! Ugh. Girls can't judge anyway, they'll be there at some point too. lol!

Chelsea @ {twotwentyone} said...

Awww! I totally know what you mean about ugly crying. During recruitment we would tell all the ugly criers to get in the back of the crowd. But honestly, who's a pretty crier?

Krystal said...

Awww! I'm such a sap though too -- I like was on the verge of tears the whole time through The Muppets. And I'm not preggo.

tara said...

uh oh. sounds like we have a crazy prego on our hands!!!!

daniela said...

At least you have a little BUB to use as an excuse. My only excuse for walking out of there looking like that was the [fake] death of Gerrard Butler, thanks to PS: I Love You LOL :)

Megan said...

Hahahaha! Oh my gosh, you poor thing!! I have an absolutely horrible cry face, too!!

Shelley said...

lol dont count on your emotions going back to normal! hormones go ca-razy after having a baby!!

Wiz said...

I didnt cry at my wedding either! I was pregnant when Christian the Lion came out. If you havent seen it, its on You Tube(the one set the Whitney Houston's I will Always Love You.) I wouldnt recommend it though. I BAWLED and my husband totally made fun of me.

RAY J said...

I was the same way pre-baby/pregnancy - I rarely cried at movies or teared up... didn't cry at my wedding... but omg preggo hormones got me and now being a parent... motherhood has softened me! I tear up reading news stories! That never happened before... and movies... yeah, they get me choked up at times too! I sometimes wonder what happened to the me that rarely cried, lol...

Christina said...

I totally get it. I wasn't emotional before babies either, but pregnancy screwed me up and I hate to tell you this, but it doesn't go away! Mothers are emotional wrecks for the rest their lives. I'm one of those women who cry at commercials now! Just keep lots of tissue in your purse! On another note, was the movie really that sad?
