When did I become a girl?

Living in a house with 3 females has apparently done me in. I think I need to turn in my man card.

Either that, or I have to stop watching movies with any amount of sweetness in them. (Gah… even the fact that I used the word ‘sweetness’ is just more evidence. It’s really hopeless.)

I was sitting here listening to my Spotify soundtracks playlist radio while working, and the song “The Ellie Badge” from Pixar’s UP was playing when my daughter walked in and asked what it was. I told her, and she asked about the movie. I told her there were some funny parts and some serious parts, and she asked me what the serious parts were. I started telling her that the old man’s wife had died and he wanted to take their house to a place they loved. Then she asked about other serious parts and I said the boy’s father had died (can’t remember if that’s actually true) and he wanted someone to be like a father for him. But I had to keep stopping in the middle of my explanation because I was getting all teary and emotional just thinking about it.

What the heck?!

I’ve caught myself in similar situations all too often recently, and frankly it’s a bit embarrassing and annoying. It happens most often with the Pixar films, honestly. They’re pretty good at their jobs, as you may know. Especially Monsters Inc. – the final scene of that movie absolutely wrecks me. But it’s happened with other movies, too. Heck, since I’m blowing my cover anyway, it happened when we watched the stupid “American Girl” movie Felicity (which isn’t actually stupid, just made-for-tv quality).

And it’s not just films. Truth be told, the same thing happened when I listened to some music the other day, too. It’s sickening.

I remember laughing at my mother when she did stuff like that. Now I’m my mother? That’s just wrong.

I need help. I think I need some “man up” time. Spending a week shooting things, eating meat, watching things blow up for no reason other than to watch them blow up… stuff like that.

What suggestions do you have for manning-up? Or is it really hopeless and I should just accept my fate?
