The Starbucker Meme — what’s in your glass?

My friend Terry Starbucker of Ramblings From a Glass Half Full (now you see the connection?) has started his own meme and tagged me to play along.

You know me…I love to play, so here we go.  Terry says…here’s a chance to let your creativity flow…answer the following:

  1. How full is your glass?
  2. What kind of glass is it?
  3. What’s in the glass?
  4. Reasons for #1, #2, and #3

My glass is a respectable two-thirds full.

The glass is a crystal traditional “bucket” glass.

The glass is filled with a very good single malt scotch on the rocks.

Picture_9 Scotch takes a long time to be ready to be consumed.  It’s an acquired taste — you learn to take it in slowly and  savor the warmth.

I think life is like that.  It takes us awhile to figure it out.  And when we do, we realize it’s all about sharing and savoring. (the liquid)  The glass is only 2/3 full, because my life has been filled with some amazing people and experiences but it isn’t topped off yet.  There are more remarkable discoveries ahead. (how full) And along the way, you learn that the best things in life are simple and that traditions are the threads that weave generations and families together. (the glass)

Okay…time for me to tag a few friends to play along.  If I didn’t tag you, it doesn’t  mean you shouldn’t jump in and play along.  Be sure to link back to this post and Terry’s post, so he can compile all the answers.

  1. Hi Drew, Hmmm…you sparked my noodle very early today and coffee is the drink of choice at the moment! Thanks for the tag!

    I appreciate you stopping by to celebrate my blogiversary with so many friends.

    “Here’s to ya, kid!”

  2. Drew, I’ve grown to really appreciate your take on things and your creativity, and you certainly didn’t disappoint me on this one. Well done! I’ve learned more about you and I won’t think of scotch in the same way again! Yes, much to savor here. Thanks, and all the best.

  3. Robyn,

    I look forward to reading your answer…thanks for being a good sport and playing along!


  4. Terry,

    Thanks for the tag — this was a fun one to think about. It will be interesting to see if people are more literal (like I was) and fill their glass with something they actually drink or if they’ll be more metaphoric.

    Great idea!


  5. Drewasaurus,

    Thanks for the meme bounce-pass! I hope I treated it well…

    Drew, Drew, Drew. Great perspective and self-assessment, with one glaring exception: you shouldn’t ruin a glass of single malt with ice. Just a wee dram of water to release the natural bouquet, then enjoy the liquid gold without any additional H2O.

    Of course, when we do meet, I’d still be happy to buy you a glass any way you take it.

  7. Scott,

    I know…I know. But I like my drinks very cold. Including my scotch. I love the sensation of the cool liquid going down warm.

    You buy the first round and I’ll pick up the second!
