Have you ever seen those commercials for USAA? Here, watch. I’ll wait:
Yah, they successfully make me cry every time. And they always come on while I’m running on the treadmill. So I look like an idiot tearing up while running. People have got to be thinking that I’m either in pain or it hurts so good.
No, I’m just a major softy.
So while the kids were napping and I was catching up on Grey’s Anatomy on Lifetime a commercial came on that made me bawl like a bitch. I never watch Lifetime except for Grey’s. Not that Lifetime is bad or anything, but the movies are a touch cheesy. And that new show I see commercials for, “One Born Every Minute,” seems a bit invasive. I wouldn’t like my hoo-hah out there on the prime time lineup. But that’s just me.
Then that new show’s commercial came on. Here you go, I’ll wait again:
And I was crying like a bitch. Postpartum hormones be damned, these things ALWAYS get me. Bawling. I can’t even watch the link more than once because I’ll start up again.
It’s my soft spot. Military members separated, families going on while their loved ones are doing the ultimate sacrifice, having babies, raising children…then they come home. And it’s the kids’ reactions that make me the most tearful. By far. I’m happy for the wives and husbands and parents, but those kids…
So despite my hard, tough exterior (ha!) I’m such a dang woman for those commercials.
And yes, I plan on watching that show. I’ll cry and I’ll smile and I’ll cry some more, but I’ll watch it.
