Prompt: Write a story about an empty glass.
On the table, there were three glasses. One was half-full, one was half-empty, and one was empty. The glass that was half-full was always optimistic, while the half-empty glass was a nay-sayer. Both made fun of the empty glass, for it had no purpose. The half-full glass frequently admired its contents and its ambition to be the glass chosen for thirst satisfaction. The half-empty glass lamented about its prospects of ever being chosen and actually fretted about its contents turning sour before consumption. The empty glass sat still and quietly happy; for it had once been full. However, its delicious contents had been too enticing for anyone to leave even a partial residue. The empty glass had fulfilled its purpose and was neither half-full nor half-empty.
