MY SON IS CANCER FREE! his oncologist just called me to tell me the news. i feel like all of the months of holding this stress and the tears in are finally exploding from me full force. when i called my mom to tell her she thought it was bad news because i was sobbing so uncontrollably! seriously the most amazing words i have ever heard in my life <3 <3 <3 

Re: i just got the most amazing news!

BLG - just reminding you, you are a marshmallow inside...and that is a great thing - you are so sweet; pass the insulinSmiley Happy

Re: i just got the most amazing news!

I agree, definitely a softie! But... aren't alligator/crocodile tears meant to be a false/insincere thing? Or am I confusing that with something else?

Re: i just got the most amazing news!

i think you might be right, i had the same thought Smiley Happy but i thought i was just confused. but maybe you and i are both confused! 

 

ps: three and a half hours later? still crying Smiley Very Happy haha

 

 

Re: i just got the most amazing news!

Awww, it's okay! I can't even imagine how good it must feel to have it all behind you. You can let that out whatever way you need to. Smiley Happy 

Re: i just got the most amazing news!

I'm sorry you found my thoughts insincere also. I really would never make a remark on anything unless I truly believe it or comes straight from the heart.

Re: i just got the most amazing news!

No nothing false or insincere at all alligator tears mean big streaming tears and actually I'm a little taken back that you could even think I was being insincere on something like that. Really??

Re: i just got the most amazing news!

i don't think it ever crossed anyone's mind that you were being insincere, i think we were just confused about the meaning of alligator tears, thinking they meant fake tears Smiley Happy i know i certainly didn't take it any way other than how you meant it Smiley Very Happy <3 <3 <3

Re: i just got the most amazing news!

I don't think Rikkie was actually accusing you of being insincere. Anyone who knows you on here would know you wouldn't do that.  She was simply pointing out that with your misuse of the term you could be misunderstood.  Crocodile/Alligator tears actually does mean "a false or insincere display of emotion."

Re: i just got the most amazing news!

Well certainly let me clarify what I meant that to me Crocodile Tears "when I say it" means big streaming tears. I didn't know we were beginning to analyze terms of expression. Hopefully everyone understands clearly with no confusion.

Re: i just got the most amazing news!

I'm so sorry if it sounded like I thought you were being insincere! It's 100% not how I meant to come across! I only meant to point out I thought the expression had a different meaning, I'm so sorry if it hurt you, that would never be my intention. Smiley Sad From what you said it was obvious how touched you were about the whole situation, and I never ever meant to turn that into anything else in anyone's mind. I did google the phrase and it apparently is commonly used to describe a false display of emotion, and since I was quite certain that was the complete opposite of when was actually happening I only meant to ask if I was correct about the way the phrase is usually used. Again, I didn't at any point think your words were anything but from the bottom of your heart, I'm sorry if it sounded that way. Smiley Sad
