Overfilled coffee cup
The coffee is steaming and you'd love a sip. But every attempt to get it near your lips is rewarded with a lava-like spill down the side. At home, I just start spooning some or get my head closer to the cup. In public, I just start spooning some or get my head closer to the cup. Pretentiousness was not meant to co-exist with caffeine addiction.
No, not in some hidden woodland waterfall. The kind that arrives unexpectedly and turns your home into a swimming pool. Given the flooding and plumbing problems we've experienced recently, I guess that's not surprising. But it's well worth forgetting.
Double decker bosom
Created from a bra cup that's just too small. I remember attending a friend's wedding. I'd bought a new dress, got a new hair style and thought I looked mighty fine. At least until I caught a side view in the restroom mirror. I don't care what they say, size does matter.
Half a glass of water
The opposite of an overflowing cup and a favorite pop psychology test. See the glass as half full and you are an optimist. The pessimist will perceive it as half empty. They forgot a third possibility. A realist doesn't waste time with such things. If she's thirsty, she'll get a refill.
And the biblical sense? Probably best left to the theologians. But for me, it speaks of abundance. It's good to smell the roses. To look around and see the comforts of my home and the love of my family. To embrace life's fullness and ignore it's distractions. To curl up in a comfy chair with a cup of tea in my hand, a warm cat at my feet and a friend by my side. My cup runneth over.
