HB Presents: Show that Make Me Emotional

I don't know what it was, but ABC's new show "American Inventor" made me cry. Like four times. Maybe it was seeing people, so vulnerable, with their inventions, standing on trial, their hopes and dreams wrapped up in these products; standing there, being disected by the fair but straight forward judges.

I cried with this guy's story of coming to America with nothing but will to succeed.
I cried over the dad who invented the shovel that would help people to make sand bags more quickly, saving people in floods. Yeah, he made me weep.
I totally balled my eyes out when the little boy came on with the "doggie Air Conditioning unit".

Yeah, this show, it makes me emotional.

I had to draw the line and stop watching new shows. I spend too much time watching and crying over them.
