What I learned today was that I can really get my point across by changing the tone of my voice.
Here's a primer:
When I coo, it's just something for me to get attention.
When I weep, it's a little more. I want your attention, but it ain't urgent.
When I really cry, hey, I need your help yo.
And when I cry to the point where it sounds like it comes from my gut, like a million rueful demons were auditioning for "Madame Butterfly", well, that's just me busting balls. But I could still use your help.
