me: Why do people say “cute as a button”? I’ve literally never seen a button and thought “HOW CUTE”. If anything it’s barely functional. It’s like saying that you’re “adorable as velcro”.
Victor: Or sweet as a zipper.
me: Fascinating as a safety pin. Although, I guess it’s better than “cuter than a bug’s ear”.
Victor: It’s hard not to be cuter than an insect appendage.
me: I just looked it up. It says “cute as a button” is short for “a quail button”.
Victor: What’s a quail button?
me: This monstrosity, apparently:
Victor: Wow. That looks…terrifying. Like a poultry demon.
me: It’s like if Satan…was a bird. Except, now that I think about it, Satan is supposed to be super hot and tempting so maybe in a round-about way it all makes sense.
Victor: “Your baby is as cute as Satan.”
me: Yep. That sings.
Victor: I want that on a greeting card.
In unrelated news, it’s time for the weekly wrap up.
What you missed in my shop (tentatively called “Eight pounds of uncut cocaine” so that your credit card bill will be more interesting.):
What you missed on the internets:
- I made it to the semi-finals! And now voting starts all over again. Which is weird.
- Kick-ass stuff I pinned.
This week on shit-I-didn’t-come-up-with-but-wish-I-did-because-it’s-kind-of-awesome:
This week’s round-up sponsored by Awkward Moments with Men, an uninhibited and snarky collection of sordid but awesome stories about the perils of love and lust for two young women in the modern world. I haven’t finished it completely, but I recommend.
