Being forced to be strong for a friend can be a blessing in disguise. If you want my number so you have someone you can crumble to just say the word. Love you hon.
Maybe you can sob together for different reasons? Either way, it's definitely a distraction. Hurray for distractions!
Yikes! You are such a good friend. Agree that distractions can be a good thing.
I'll be the jerk that asks - why was she sobbing?! What happened?!
I agree with Jenn, it is amazing what reserves you can draw on when someone else needs you, and it can feel good to remember how strong you can be. My best friend is contemplating leaving the father of her two kids, and we sobbed on each others shoulders, both for different, but very valid reasons.
