    It could mean anything - or nothing. Please give us more context.

    Did you ever notice that when you put a liquid in a tall, slender glass that the liquid forms a shape that is tall and slender?

    But you can take the exact same liquid and put it in a short, squat mug and the liquid will form a shape that is short and squat?
