i never meant to make the onion cry

To reduce the tears when peeling or slicing onions, chill them first.

Alternatively, cut off the top but leave the root on.

The root contains the largest amounts of sulphuric compounds, which cause tears when the onion is cut. But remember to remove the root prior to cooking or eating.
