With a handmade waffle cone, with hand made chocolate ice cream mixed with peanut butter and nuts. (I got this at the grand canyon when I was very small)...

If it happened with that cone, I'd probably start crying.

I've cried over less, but not in public. When my nerves are running low, every little thing might cause a miniature breakdown, during which I huddle in a corner and sob for an hour. But it's gotten better since I've upped my vitamin B6 dose.

This. I read somewhere that sadness is repressed anger, so when I'm really upset and it's socially unnaceptable to lash out, I just start crying. Last time it happened I was 17 (19 right now) so I'm not sure if it will go away with age, or efen if I qualify as a "grown up man".

Sometimes a good book or a good movie can make me cry, Werther from Goethe, the death of Dumbledore in the book and the final chapter of an anime I saw last year come to mind.
