How Full is Your Wine Glass?

Glass Not half-full

January 18, 2014– My Dear Secret Diary, as I age, I am trying harder and harder to be an optimist.

But I was served this glass of wine at a birthday party last week; and hard as I might try, there’s no way I can see this glass as half full.

(Post-Postscript: After this post went up, my colleague Emily noted in the comment area below: “I would say [the glass is] 3/4 full of air.)

  • I would say it’s 3/4 full of air.

    • TheBigMilkshake

      Fair point. Actually, more like 4/5 full of air.

  • Casey

    I would say it’s a tease!

    • TheBigMilkshake

      Maybe, but in truth it was still too much for me.

  • I try not to whine about wine

    This actually made me laugh out loud. Having the “value shopper” mentality, I would rather a small glass filled to the top with wine, instead of a big glass, partially filled. (in this case, very “partially” filled). But having said that, better something than nothing.. bottoms up.. and find that waitress for second glass..

      LOL. Great pun!!! And I’m always looking for something to whine about!

  • Zinga

    I believe alcohol these days evaporates really quick!

    • TheBigMilkshake

      LOL. Thanks Zinga for a great insight!!!!

  • Ricks

    Looks like they took that from another table who had just finished dining.

    • TheBigMilkshake

      Never thought of that Ricks… Interesting thought.

  • If you drive then that’s more than full.

    • TheBigMilkshake

      Guess that’s right

  • Call Me Hecky

    The other 3/4ths are gaseous wine.
