A comedian kept a list of everything that made his wife cry over the course of a month — and the hilarious list has been retweeted more than 31,000 times on Twitter.

Aaron Gillies and his wife, Lex, have been married since last year. Gillies said his wife cries about everything, so he decided to start a list.

Some of the items? “She was hungover and saw a picture of a piglet.” Also, “she watched a video about a dog.”

“I thought it would get about 12 retweets from people that know Lex in real life and know what she is like,” the London-based comedian told the Huffington Post. “Neither of us thought it would go this big! 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!”

Gillies said he cleared the list with his wife before sharing it online. Here’s the full list:

Reasons My Wife Is Crying:

– “She found out swans can be gay and thought it was really nice.”

– “She was hungover and saw a picture of a piglet.”

– “I waited until it was dark and pretended to be The Babadook.”

– “The fluffy bunny escaped from an arctic fox in a documentary.”

– “There were no biscuits in the house.”

– “She remembered swans can be gay.”

– “I tried to hold her hand when she wasn’t expecting it.”

– “I cooked her dinner after a long day.”

– “She watched a video about a dog.”

About FOX 2 News

FOX 2 and KPLR 11 in St. Louis cover the news in Missouri and Illinois. There are over 68 hours of live news and local programming on-air each week. Our website and live video streams operate 24/7. Download our apps for alerts and follow us on social media for updates in your feed.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
