Stop Cutting Onions No it's not that I'm crying it's just that my eyes are sweating. What miracle- or curse- is this that I have this waterworks condition. No her pain is not the cause of the water that you see it's not the news of her passing it's the onions you see. Who said the purple ones were sweet and would not attack, my dear they are the most vicious of the lot! I think I will take a break go and lie down the burden of their juice is too great. If I stay a while longer I might drown.
