It turns out that the hormone, lacrimone, that makes the milk flow ALSO makes tears flow (as in lactate, but also as in lacrimonious). So this makes it really, really easy to cry now. Example: A few days after coming home from the hospital we were sitting at breakfast when Adi mentioned that James Brown had died.
"Don't tell me you cried," Katus asked when I told her. Of course I did! And how!
But when asked if the reaction was the same in response to Gerald Ford's passing, the answer is no. With no disrespect to the former president, I have to admit that I thought he was dead already.
