Glass of Water

  • Water
  • A glass
  • a lemon wedge


1. Grab a glass from your cupboard. Be sure that it is not too large, nor too small, and most importantly, don't drop it, as it will break and everything you tried for will be ruined!

2. Slowly bring the glass beneath your faucet. Be sure not to chip or break the glass on the faucet itself, as faucets have a much higher E value than glass on the Rockwell Hardness Scale developed by Hugh M. Rockwell in 1908.

3. Turn on the faucet. Pay extra attention as to which knob you are turning. As one is hot, and the other is cold. Turn the cold one. This knob is usually marked with a C or the color blue. If you are red-blue colorblind, ask for assistance from a trusted source such as your Mom, or your Sister!

4. As the water line approaches the top of the glass, turn off the faucet completely. Ideally, there should be a centimeter of space between the water line and the top of the glass. You can easily use a dime to measure this distance.

4. If you want this glass of water to be extra special, you may garnish with an orange slice!
