Is the glass half full, or half eaten?

April 4, 2007

A couple of days ago, I told college seniors who are about to graduate that they should consider a career in snake handling, and I still believe that’s good advice.******But now the professional drinking glass swallowers have asked why I didn’t give them the same sort of plug, and they have a point. This is another form of entertainment that brings joy to millions.******What I don’t understand, though, is how you find out if you’re good at this, how you determine exactly how big a glass you can handle, and above all, what you do when you suddenly realize you probably should have stopped with a glass that was one size smaller.***
