I have a story to tell you. Remember when I mentioned that Follow That Bird scared me really bad as a child and I couldn't watch it without crying for Big Bird? And I can't watch it at all now?

Well, C and I watched Muppets Take Manhattan recently, and about 20 minutes into the movie, this happens. All the Muppets leave Kermit in Manhattan and take off to do their own thing. But for some reason, "Saying Goodbye" - the song they sing when they leave - made me WEEP. Not teary eyed; not a single, lone tear; I mean open-mouthed, audible sobbing.

Disclaimer/In my defense: You should know that when we watched this movie it was That Time Of The Month and I hadn't had a good hard cry about the recent wreck yet. So a good hard cry was due. Additionally, I'm sure my reaction to that song wouldn't be that hard of a cry every time. I hadn't seen the movie in a while, which is why I put it in my Netflix queue in the first place. I know the song and know it usually makes me sad, but even I didn't see what happened coming.

C was stunned at my tears. Bless his heart. I know my sister is the same way at that part of the movie - she fast forwards because she can't watch it. I was glad to hear I was not the only one with strong feelings toward Follow That Bird; someone please come forward and tell me "Saying Goodbye" makes you cry, too.
