Tuna Pimiento Patties with Pimiento Tartar Sauce, what makes you cry? — 6 Comments

  1. My daughter will be getting married in 6 weeks, I don’t know how I will hold it together. A laugh and putting fish cakes in front of me would distract me.

  2. Hearing that My Beloved’s daughter is going to have a baby did it to me recently. Like you, it’s usually music. Kiri te Kanawa singing arias. Danny Boy. Certain Christmas carols; The Little Drummer Boy gets me every time.

  3. It’s music for me too. The orchestral ending of “Nessun Dorma” in Puccini’s Turandot, the chord change to major in Dvorak’s New World Symphony, and hearing a large crowd singing any national anthem get me every time. And just thinking about hearing Schumann’s ‘Im wunderschönen Monat Mai’ from Dichterliebe (especially if it’s sung by a tenor) and/or Vaughan William’s “On Wenlock Edge” (particularly ‘Is my team ploughing?’) immediately brings tears to my eyes.

    But I know that after tasting these fish cakes with pimiento tartar sauce, I would be swooning and saying, “je vais pleurer”.

  4. Tanna, rainbows always make me smile
