Hungry snail!

People talking about glass frostings in a picture...

Sometimes a conversation just curves out of left field...

Can I suggest that the juice meniscus closest to us should be sharper, as it's very close to the frosting, and so wouldn't have much light scattered at all?

You may not have thought I would know what "meniscus" means, Sarah, but I have been holding onto the definition of that word for over 15 years now, just for this moment right here, ever since my 7th grade teacher - Mrs. Waechter - taught us about menisci in science class.

You do whatever you want with your foreground meniscus. I'm going to savor my moment, and then promptly forget what that word means, because this is never going to happen again.
