Cute as a button? I for one have a hard time seeing a button as cute. Unless they are talking about pins? You know the button’s with cute sayings. Like “Kiss me I’m Irish!”
Now cute as a puppy, Iget. Perhaps cute as belly button! But, cute as button… I think this phrase came from a simpler time and carried into our generations. I heard this the other day and got to thinking about it. So, I wonder if that is why snaps were invented. Or, velcro… maybe even latches. It is hard to imagine some one saying, “That is as cute as velcro.” Hummm, maybe!
Little Mikey is taking a shower with his mother and says, “Mom, what are those things on your chest?” Unsure of how to reply, she tells Little Mikey to ask his dad at breakfast tomorrow, quite certain the matter would be forgotten.
Mikey didn’t forget. The following morning he asked his father the same question. His father, always quick with the answers, said, “Why? Mikey, those are balloons. When your mommy dies, we can blow them up and she’ll float to heaven.”
Mikey thinks that’s really neat and asks no more questions.
A few weeks later, Little Mikey’s dad comes home from work a few hours early. Mikey runs out of the house crying hysterically, “Daddy! Daddy! Mommy’s dying!”
His father says, “Calm down son! Why do you think Mommy’s dying?”
“Uncle Bob is blowing up Mommy’s balloons and she’s screaming, ‘Oh God, I’m coming’.”
have a humorous day
