sadly, I didn't have a handy box of tissues
even worse, I hadn't bothered taking off the day's eye make-up
but sometimes you're just going to sob your heart out, aren't you? I mean even if I was still married, even if I was happily married, there would be days when it all got on top of me and it all became too much and I'd just dissolve into floods of tears and make my own personal contribution to rising sea levels. . . I wonder if the Thames Barrier works backwards. . .
