And if it is half full....what is it half full of? And why is it not full? And what have you done with the other half? And if it is half empty, what are you going to do to fill it? And fill it with what?

I agree! Guess I should ask where do they sell smaller glasses!

I love this discussion! My glass starts out empty, then gets filled (with water), then my cats drink half of it before I can get to it, so it ends up being half empty and I'm never really sure why. Unless I catch the cats. My cats help keep my outlook positive, though, so if they make my glass half empty, it could probably be perceived as being half full. And I wonder why I'm always thirsty. . .

I think it just depends on how tired and exhaussted you are! As you look at that glass it is partially occupied... IF you are tired you think half empty, if you have energy you think half full. IF you are frugal, you think, "i'd better drink that and not let it go to waste". And if it is your night to do the dishes, you just dump it, wash it and get your job done soon as possible!

It really depends if I am in the process of emptying it or filling it at the moment. If I am drinking it down it is half empty, if I am pouring into it it is half full. sometimes half a glass is all that is needed and a full glass goes to waste. If I am filling it, I would most likely continue to fill it with whatever the first half was as I am not much on mixed drinks ;) it would be rather pessimistic of me to consider my glass half full when I am really trying to empty it, wouldn't it? perspective, my dear, it is all perspective. cheers!

Persepctive is the key word, that is for sure! I just take what I have and do the best I can and the rest has to take care of itself!

My glass is more than 1/2 full. My glass is not all full because I took the excess and started filling my daughters glass. I am not always happy, or fulfilled. so I work on filling my glass with those. As well as my kid. I want her glass to be overflowing with lifes good things. For the season though, I wouldn't mind a little aggnog in my glass.Non alchol variety.

This is really cute. Thanks for the chuckle. I am a believer that the glass is half full. I have to think that one day it will be full right to the top. Life can be hard at times, but that's all part of life and who it makes us to be.

Good thinking. I agree with you on this. Half full - and just one day it can be fuller.... now... with what? I say Iced Tea - raspberry flavor if you have it!

it is half empty because there is a hole at the bottom. So it doesn't matter what you fill it with, it will never be full.

my glass is almost full…neither half, nor over-flowing. Just enough for me to drink comfortably from it. I would really do or wish for nothing to add or delete from it.
