a woman cries. cameras capture the woman crying. the footage of the woman crying is aired on television. the footage captures the attention of everybody. everybody is very interested in watching the footage of the woman crying. everybody watches the footage of the woman crying over and over again. everybody is trying to see something in the footage of the woman crying that other people don’t see. everybody has an opinion about the footage of the woman crying. some people think the woman is really crying. some people think she is really crying because she is really sad. some people think she is really crying because she is really sad because the guy she is going out with doesn’t really love her. some people think she is really crying because in the same situation in a hollywood movie, the star would cry, and some people have internalized the shapes of hollywood movies and the emotional triggers within them and so that is why she is crying. some people think she is fakely crying. some people think she is fakely crying because someone in charge of something wrote some things down and one of the things was that she was supposed to cry. some people think she is fakely crying because she is fake and thinks it is in her best interest to cry. some people think she is fakely really crying because she knows she is in a situation where it is in her best interest to cry even if she doesn’t need to cry and that people might finally really see what she is sure is true and good inside her, what she has been trying to show them, if she would just pretend to cry, and the pain of wanting that makes her really cry. everybody is watching the footage of the woman crying over and over again. everybody is trying to see something in the footage of the woman crying that other people don’t see. everybody has an opinion about the footage of the woman crying.
