Brief Partner Obs

So, I live with my partner, who is both an extreme extrovert and an observant Jew. This is relevant because the Jewish High Holidays started tonight, and rather than being able to celebrate in person with friends, we're stuck in quarantine for obvious reasons. I guess that combined with other news today brought them to a breaking point and they started crying in the kitchen.

I didn't catch the full scene, but what I did see involved their eyes glistening, though no tears fell, their voice breaking in conversation, and them using paper towels to hastily wipe at their eyes and blow their nose with their distinctive honk. No sobbing, and no touch happened, but I definitely appreciated the sight for what it was, even if I primarily wanted to support my partner. They said there wasn't anything I could do, so I accepted it. And that's the obs! I'm definitely feeling mixed emotions now, and I'm sure they understand.
