The lava-colored melted glass oozed from the long pipe that the instructor was holding. I blinked. It was such a lovely color! Was this really happening before my eyes? The melted glass was slowly dripping downwards like the floor was a planet with moderate gravity. I straightened up and squinted at the bright neon orange, peering at its interior. Minute bubbles were drifting and popping inside the closed glob of glass like physalia jellyfish drifting lazily in the sea. I gasped as I saw a drop of the glass fall to the floor and harden as quick as – that. The instructor let the rest of the glass drip down causing a snakelike form of glass, sizzling like water on a hot grill. My eyes watched – what a lovely sight! Observing a glob of 2,000-degree melted glass was enough to scare me out of my wits. There was screaming in my head, “Eek! Get away from that stuff.”

“It freaks me out!” my body screamed at me.

“No!” I shouted back. “I want to get a better look!”
