Very funny, sniff sniff!

Yesterday TB made a little crack about me getting easily choked up. Ah yes, Grasshopper, very observant you are. I just turned into Yoda for a minute and I'm not sure why. Anyway, that was a very astute observation of him - I'm KNOWN for my easy crying. During the Movie Club years, we'd get to a certain part of a movie and they'd just look at me, knowing what was coming. Whatever, man - it's a healthy release.

Anyway, I ran across this just now and thought I'd share. And yes, I did cry over it. If you don't get at least a little choked up, you are a robot and I feel sorry for you.

Coke commercial that made me cry:

That Coke, sniffle, first the polar bears, and now this, sniffle. You are here to be happy. That pretty much sums it up.

I am, in fact, a noted Cold-hearted Old Bastard (tm) but that did choke me up a bit. Good one!

And Dys will tell you, it's the way I'm built: the more I like you, the more shit I'll give you. (This is why I torture my son mercilessly.) To quote Jesse James (the motorcycle builder, not the outlaw): "Know what I'd say to you if I didn't like you? Nothin'." ;)

Shari - And people wonder why I'm such a Coke fanatic. It's not just a soda, it's a way of life! And I WOULD like to teach the world to sing and also buy it a Coke.

TB - I secretly love being teased. Just don't tell anyone.

I feel TOTALLY MANIPULATED by that commercial, because "Life is short, sweet little baby. Love, sweet old man" has NOTHING TO DO WITH SOFT DRINKS. But! I am weeping anyway!

That is an AWEOME commercial. I have friends who DO NOT understand why I want to live to be 100. I'm excited to see what the world will be like. I want to be like him.

No worries. I'll keep it between us. And, you know, the internet.

Kim said...

Swistle - I'm telling you, that Coke knows what they're doing, the evil bastards.

SL - It's true. I'm amazed at just what I've seen in my lifetime.

TB - Thank you.

Jokes on Coke - I liked their ad, but I don't drink their pop! Oh, and no fair making me cry so early on a Friday.

Kim said...

Julie - I'm just torturing myself because of the no-caffeine rule right now. I am dumb.
But! I've had serious ovary cramps the past two days and I'm choosing to believe that's a good sign! Have you experienced that at all?

Julie said...

I've been generally achy in that region for a week, which I choose to see as a good sign, too. I also had a tiny little bit of spotting yesterday - perhaps implantation spotting? It's so hard to know!!!

Kim said...

I've heard of the spotting too! Aaachh, it's all so crazy!

Aaahhh! Someone else who says 'pop'!!!

There are so few of us. ;)

My Mom always welled up with tears at one of the Maxwell House Coffee commercials where the neighbors surprise the lonely, elderly woman with a Christmas tree...you know...and coffee. :D
