For the past several days I have felt like I needed to cry but have been incapable of doing so, and it is really, really annoying

Cry? I think I’ve heard of that. How does one “cry,” exactly?
I never feel more like a robot than when people talk about crying. I just don’t have that module and I suspect I never did, beyond an infant’s instinct. I don’t think it has anything to do with my acculturation as masculine, either.
