    Smile something to do with a glass

    Hello. I don't quite understand what "a glass" here means.
    Please help. Thank you!

    What's that one they have the adverts for?
    Meningitis. How do you tell if someone has that?
    Something to do with a glass and spots... I can't remember!

    It could be a petri dish with some tissue, blood (the spots) on it (or whatever is analysed with the microscope in order to check for meningitis).

    The standard test you can do at home if you suspect someone has meningitis is to get an ordinary drinking glass and press the side if the glass hard against the skin of the person, over an area where they have the rash. If the spots do not fade under the pressure, then it probably is meningitis.
