From the Annals of Crying All of the Sudden at the Gym

If you read this regularly you may know – I really apologize, you should find something better to read if you know this – that I occasionally will post a podcast or a clip of audio of something that hit me in the emotional core out of nowhere while I’m working, running, lifting weights, stretching – that kind of thing.

Today, I had to take a little extra pause leaning over the bicep curl seat to have a private cry from this gem.

It was in the opening sequence of this Radio Lab episode interviewing Annie Druyan who thought it’d be a good idea to talk in an absurdly youthful and bubbly girl voice about falling in love with Carl Sagan where I might overhear it and forgivably start crying all of the sudden.

“For keeps.” What am I, made of stone?

*Here’s the link of the extended clip of the Space Capsules segment mentioned in the show, where Neil Gaiman, Alice Waters, Margaret Cho and others offer what they would preserve for other civilizations.
