I always found that a funny question. And in honor of our monthly theme of humor, this is a lighter look at the question.
The glass is completely full. It's half full of water and half full of air.
Well, a few months ago, a circle of friends got to talking about this subject, and here are some of my favorite comments. I may be paraphrasing some of them.
Full is relative. Are you looking at 2 ounces of water in a 2 ounce glass or in a 10 ounce glass? - Megan
Is this the water I want? - Megan
Forget the amount. What about the quality? Is the water clear or murky? - Martha
Asking whether it's half full or half empty assumes that I wanted a full glass of water.
What's your favorite riff on this question?
