Glass Adage


On this day, your cousin has his birthday.  You have apple crisp and ice cream and funny conversation and music and everyone tries to decide how you'd look with that pageboy.  Or maybe that one chick's cut from Make Me a Supermodel, or what about the Madonna Rain video pixie?  In the end, it is decided, fuck it – just put a bobby pin in it.

But you don't ever stop thinking about how you know your friend has survived being struck and dragged a kilometre and a half by a transport on the highway.  And later, when someone wonders if this glass is half empty or half full, you're only glad everyone is alive to contemplate it.
