Interesting...

"The doctor examined little Emily's growth."

As you read that sentence, did you wonder about Emily's height? Or were you concerned that she had cancer?

Interesting article which suggests that your interpretation of the above sentence may depend on your anxiety level.

(For the record, I was of course concerned that Emily had cancer. And when first introduced to the half empty/half full thing at the age of about thirteen, was convinced the answer was half empty).
