Half full glass

Image from facebook

As Eeyore says (to Winnie-the-Pooh), “Well, at least you have a glass..”

We all have a glass in life and it all depends on how we look at it.

The IT support person might ask you if you’ve tried emptying the glass and then refilling it, but I prefer the following:

“Listen to the mustn’ts, child. Listen to the don’ts.
Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts.
Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me…
Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.”
~ Shel Silverstein

    Like the poem, GM. Neat take on the glass. Gotta say, I would rather be full of water than air, especially hot air.

    WWW – 😀

    speccy – Really? Oh good!

    BWT – Will do when I am not driving!

    Fossie – A glass cannot be a vacuum, it is open ended – to allow for more liquid! Boom Boom!

    Maxi – I like Shel Silverstein’s work. I do like my glass or beaker filled, but it seldom happens.

    Everyone leaves plenty of space for milk (which I cannot tolerate), or a wine glass with 125mls, may look half empty, but in fact contains 1.5 units. In the UK, the alcohol limit for drivers is 80 milligrammes of alcohol per 100ml of blood. In most other European countries, the limit is less, usually 50mg per 100ml of blood. So if I need to drive, my glass remains EMPTY.
