Two ways of seeing the glass

GLASS HALF EMPTY

When you accidentally dislodged the small decorative basket that sits on top of the bathroom cabinet and contains dozens of small items pertitent to female grooming and titivation, and said decorative basket fell off the cabinet, there was a mighty clattering and smashing on the tiled floor.

GLASS HALF FULL

Only one thing actually broke.

GLASS HALF EMPTY

It was nail polish.

GLASS HALF FULL

It was clear nail polish.

GLASS HALF EMPTY

Because it was clear shiny nail polish, you couldn't see all the clear shiny tiny shards of broken glass lying in it.

GLASS HALF FULL

So you had to clean up with the dustpan and brush before safely proceeding to the nail polish remover, and now you've got an excuse to nick up to the shops, because you need to buy new broomware.

Didn't you do this recently with perfume? Time to find a ground level storage receptacle praps?

The perfume fell from somewhere else. The real problem is the hereditary arthritis at the bases of my thumbs. Very good point about the ground level receptacle though and I am already working on it.

Having to clean up the milk spilt into the cutlery drawer by the kids doesn't really rate after this.
