It's a friggin' cartoon, you twit!

I used to pick on my oldest sister when we were kids for this. Always and forever teasing her for inablilty to control herself over some dumb old movie. I used to call her..."The leaker"...(mental note to self to remind her of this memory...she'll be thrilled, I'm sure)
The last time I picked on her for this, was when we were both young parents, and had taken our kids to see the movie, "The Little Mermaid"...you know, a Disney movie.  A happy, feel good cartoon, that is SUPPOSED to make you smile by the time it's through.  But there's my sister...bawling like a baby at the end....and then there's me, rolling my eyes and shaking my head.  I just didn't get how she be such a baby...over a CARTOON!! 
So fast forward a few years...and I'm home alone and going through the movie drawer...and I run across a copy of Lilo and Stitch. I had never seen this movie I had bought for the kids a few years earlier...so I decided to watch it.  OMG!!  Have you seen this thing?!?!  The tables had turned...and I was the one bawling over a silly cartoon movie!!  I'm such a SAP!!  I MAY have to apologize to my sister now....but not unless she happens to read this.  I have a reputation to uphold, you know!

Don't feel bad. I'm 48 and Frosty The Snowman still makes me cry. The part where he melts, I cry. So, I can totally relate to the cartoon thing along with movies, lol.

( blows nose, sniff, sniff ) it happens all the time to me.... " Lassie, come home!"

I just NEVER thought it would happen over something like Lilo and Stitch though! lol
