getting emotional

I came in in the middle of this, having signed off while on vacation, and
missed Una's post. However, I did want to say something about crying.
IMHO being "strong" or whatever has nothing to do with it -- it is your
body's reaction to adrenalin rush or tension (plus some culturation certainly).
Maybe I am just being defensive because at 50 I still get very very angry
(most recently at my dean) and have to get up and walk out because if I
try to talk I will just start to cry. I have learned how to tamp it down for
a while until I get to my office or the nearest bathroom -- and it mostly
only happens when I get REALLY pissed off. Well -- it's less destructive than
throwing things, I guess. My door has some pretty good dents in the bottom
too.
