A fit of crying
The bear cried out and stood on its hind legs, bawling at him.
Besides, I couldn't even talk about Annie without bawling my eyes out.
At first he wouldn't answer the door but I could hear his wife bawling so I kept knocking 'til he came.
The men weren't bawling.
But, I complied, and spent 4-5 hours writing a two-page letter to my mother, just bawling all the way through.
