Poop Tears

This week I have constantly been thinking about the different kind of tears.
There are Crocodile Tears
 Which "The Phrase Finder" defines as, "To weep crocodile tears is to put on an insincere show of sorrow." That's interesting to me. Probably because I never knew that. I thought they were called that because of the shape they had or something.

There are those tears that come out when you laugh your gut out.
I don't know the formal name for any of these, but I do know that I love when this happens to me. Maybe we start crying, because we literally feel like we are laughing our guts out. Who knows?

There are those silent, mascara-running, genuine tears.
I guess I never really wear mascara, so I could relate to guys that don't understand this quite fully. However, I have had genuine and silent tears, and I have seen the mascara running on other girls. So there you go.

And then, there are those you don't even really know are coming and they just pop out off of your eyelash.
Those are what I call poop tears. Yup, you read me right.
Those are the ones that I have been experiencing the most this week. But then, I go out and run in my backyard.
<---- That is exactly what I look like. Anyways, I go for a run in my backyard and just think. Thinking is great. God is great. Tears are great.

Let your tears come.  Let them water your soul.  ~Eileen Mayhew
