Chipped Ceramic Tile Repair

Hi,

I chipped a small flake off the surface along the edge of a tile (pea sized, mostly glaze) while scraping out cracked grout around the tub edge. What is the best way to adhere this chip piece back to the tile?

Thanks.

Hobby shop sells CA adhesive, (super glue on steroids) a medium viscosity would work well.

Nope, you are not missing anything, but in the CA from, you can get different viscosity, and the ability to fill different sized gaps, porous material, foam safe, etc etc.. with crazy glue you get something generic and pay a premium for a tiny amount.. link from a quick google that may help answer questions.
