why meniscus?

me·nis·cus                         /məˈniskəs/


Quite simply my favourite word in the whole wide world.



  1. The curved upper surface of a liquid in a tube.
  2. A lens that is convex on one side and concave on the other.
 I sometimes overfill my water glass just to get a quick meniscus thrill …
Insects get to create their own meniscus fun:
It feels good to say it … go on, have a go …  it sounds like the thing that it is
… and it’s a lens … what’s not to love?

One thought on “why meniscus?

Thank you for taking the time to comment, I try to reply but sometimes life just gets in the way, for which I'm sorry!
