Daily Prompt: The Glass Half and Half

today’s challenge at the daily prompt

half and half

200458043-001

pessimist. optimist. realist

The banker would say that the glass has just under 50% of its net worth in liquid assets.

The government would say that the glass is fuller than if the opposition were in power.

The opposition would say that it is irrelevant because the present administration has changed the way such volume statistics are collected.

The economist would say that, in real terms, the glass is 25% fuller than the same time last year.

The philosopher would say that, if the glass was in the forest and no one was there to see it, would it be half anything?

The psychiatrist would ask, “what did your mother say about the glass?”

The physicist would say that the volume of this cylinder is divided into two equal parts; one a colorless, odorless liquid, the other, an odorless, colorless gas. Thus the cylinder is neither full nor empty. Rather, each half of the cylinder is full, one with a gas, and one with a liquid.

The seasoned drinker would say that the glass doesn’t have enough ice in it.

"You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you." ~ Ray Bradbury. I tend to agree with Mr. Bradbury, although my writings steer clear from dystopia, I am a fan of Batman and the young Bruce Wayne … throughout this blog (if you stay long enough) you’ll come to understand what this mortal thinks of the world around her ... maybe you'll even agree.
