Went out for lunch today with the spouse and my (unsweetened) iced tea came in this glass,
which has a line about halfway up with the word optimist on top of the line and pessimist below it.
Over the course of lunch, I kept staring at the glass until I got to the line. It was decision time.
Was I an optimist or a pessimist?
The verdict: I am a realist. Technically, the glass was half empty, as I had drunk half of the iced tea. Did that make me a pessimist? No. Had the glass been empty and the waitress filled it up halfway, I would have said it was half full.
So, what about all you? Do you see the glass half empty or half full? Do you consider yourself a pessimist or an optimist? Let me know via the Comments.
(Psst. All you pessimists. Check out these cool glasses over at Despair.com. I may have to get one.)
