Glass half full/empty?

I’ve been visiting Barcelona for 35 years. I will not be visiting it for another 35 years.

I think the problem is more like the glass is 3/4 full.

I'd bet that, in 35 years, all 3 of our glasses will be sitting on the table without us, regardless of %.

Internet says I have exactly 35 years, so I'll half toast you.

Mind you, the two old men at the bar at Cervecia Vendimia who have been there twenty years to my knowledge may be there forever. They may unwittingly be angels.

My daughter just told me she had never heard of Walt Whitman before today.

I hate myself. How could I have not taught her that? I gave her everything from Elvis Presley and Hemingway to Matisse and Picasso. How did I not give her Whitman?

I just handed her Leaves of Grass, said if she doesn’t want to read it, just hang out with it for a while. She didn’t even know he was a New Yorker.

Just another self loathing long islander who moved to Brooklyn to become an "artist"
