Spilt milk is about the only thing Lex Gillies doesn't cry over. To prove it, London comedian Aaron Gillies kept a list of everything that made his emotional wife cry in a month and posted it to Twitter on Sunday, KFOR reports. As of this story, the list titled "Reasons My Wife Is Crying" has been retweeted more than 34,000 times and received more than 55,000 likes. "Neither of us thought it would go this big," Aaron tells the Huffington Post. "But so many people are identifying with it, maybe sensitivity is seen as something not many people talk about openly, so seeing someone show it started a rather large conversation."

So what are a few of the things that make Lex cry? Apparently everything from "I cooked her dinner after a long day" to "She was hungover and saw a picture of a piglet" to "I waited until it was dark and pretended to be the Babadook." Luckily, going viral isn't one of the items on the list. Aaron tells the Huffington Post he checked with Lex before tweeting it and she found it "very amusing." "She doesn't care that she is an emotional person, and it ends up being brilliant for anecdotes," he says. According to KFOR, the couple only got married last year, so the list is sure to grow. (Yes, there is such a thing as a good cry.)
