I was instantly apprehensive remembering just how ugly the sobbing got when I read Maybe, Someday. With the buzz about Ugly Love being even more emotional I prepared myself in advance anxiously awaiting that point where my heart gets ripped out of my chest. I gotta tell you Ė I didnít cry. Youíre probably screaming WHAT? at the screen right now but itís true Ė I didnít cry. You want to know why? Itís because I would still be crying, the type of crying you never recover from.
