I cried for so many reasons”.

‘‘I cried because I remembered how many times I held the seat belt in a car so that lastma would not stop me but the seat belt never connected so I just held it till I passed them”
‘‘I cried for a million and one reasons I can not write about. I cried because I remembered how many times I got to sit by the exit with leg room and I was politely told I was too overweight to sit there…in case of an emergency it is assumed a big person will not move fast enough…..Hmmm’
