We all use buttons every day: we push them on cell phones, appliances in the kitchen, the TV remote, on elevators, and we fasten/unfasten buttons on our clothing. We also use buttons in our phrases:
Button your lip
Don’t push my buttons
Right on the button
At the touch of a button
Even Ringo Starr said, “America: It’s like Britain, only with buttons.”
But THE BEST BUTTONS of all recently winged their way half-way around the globe and arrived just the other day. I received this beautiful button necklace from my friend Ailsa in New Zealand. She crafted it especially for me—and I love it. Needless to say, when wearing it I feel cute as a button!
What buttons have you pushed today?
