Wine Glass

A wine glass is generally composed of three parts: the bowl, stem, and foot. The shape of the glass is very important as it concentrates the flavor and aroma of the wine. The stem of a glass provides a way to hold the glass without warming the wine from body heat.

Attack of the Broken Glass

When I was small, whenever glass is broken I was ordered to stay put so as not to step on any of the tiny shards. It as particularly frightening because I used to recall a story I heard of miniscule glasses that would pierce into the skin of your soles, travel through your bloodstream and upon reaching your the heart - rupture it until you die.
