Good one. The class clown character on QI was wearing thin ages ago. Come to think of it, I haven't watched a full episode of that programme since Stephen Fry packed in.

Never understood why British people immediately get out of their seats on a plane as soon as the seat belt bell sounds. They won't be able to get off the plane until the doors open ten minutes from after the seat belt bell goes, yet they choose to stand with hunched shoulders because of the low aircraft ceiling and tutting whilst checking their wrist watches. Why not just sit in your seat in comfort? Just because you stand up it doesn't mean you bags will be the first on the luggage carousel. Fucking tacky English morons, many of them usually wearing replica football shirts. I wish they'd just stay at fucking home. They pay for holidays and then moan all fucking week about exchange rates and spend their time checking their phone for sports results back in England instead of taking in the beautiful blue skies and sights of their holiday destination of choice. Just stay away from me because you are using up valuable oxygen. Twats!

Lasses swearing in the street and on buses. Lads spending hours in front of mirrors. When did that start happening ? and why ?

Why do I think it is a soft thing to cry? Is it male conditioning? It's not like the slightest thing, but people or animals suffering,  my kids in distress, saying goodbye to a loved one who I won't see for a long time. Soft as shit me, but I feel ashamed and embarrassed about it at the time.

I seem to have been much more that way about my pets than I have been about people close to me, which doesn't seem normal.

My mum died very unexpectedly (at near enough the same age I am now) and, though she was definitely by far the most important person in my life up to then (and perhaps ever), I'm genuinely bemused as to why I wasn't more of a blubbering mess at the time.

I only have to think of the look in my dogs' eyes at their end to reach for an industrial package of Kleenex.

Not right. But that's how I seem to roll.

Good posts. Me too re crying more frequently than I used to. I defy cry more now since I've become a Dad. I feel so lucky to have what I have and that my child is healthy and happy. Sometimes it's too much to handle, but in the best way imaginable.

Sounds like you're doing it right to me. Good Dock.

Maybe not crying is a primordial thing. Crying shows you're hurt, being hurt shows weakness and weakness is picked up by things that want to eat you or other enemies to use against you. Seems a bit daft here in this day and age but I guess if you are feeling vulnerable or vulnerability is normal these primordial instincts kick in. Having a child I guess makes you less aware of your own  vulnerability because the children are now the vulnerable ones.

Over t'pond, a ten cent coin is smaller than a Five cent coin but the same colour. I mean like, what kind of insanity is that.
