Your RBR Word of the Day: lachrymose

New, comment
lachrymose \LAK-ruh-mohs\, adjective:
1. Generating or shedding tears; given to shedding tears; suffused with tears; tearful.
2. Causing or tending to cause tears.

After the Toby Keith and Kenny Chesney bashing from yesterday, I feel like I should be honest and admit that the maudlin, lachrymose lyrics to The Good Stuff have gotten to me a time or two. I'm only human, people!
