Buttons Buttons Everywhere

Riddle me this, ladies.

What is the purpose of that extra button on the inside of our pants?

Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

You know the button of which I'm speaking, don't you?

The one that constantly pushes into my your gut and leaves a perfect press mark?

The one that I you never button?
(Seriously, it's not just me, is it?)

I wonder what idiot thought of this completely stoooopid and wholly unnecessary mechanism?

Probably a man.

A skinny man at that.

(It's not obvious that I'm PMSing, is it?)

*trotting off to eat an apple bury my face in a bag of chips while wearing comfy pj pants, with the button press mark from today's work pants still embedded on mah belly...*
This one's called "Sweet Relief in a Drawstring"

I don't button it either, I have no idea why it's there.

Oh? So they make jeans with buttons? I had no idea. I totally go with the drawstring look daily. I'm not sure I could even figure out how to put on a pear of jeans anymore.

Yes, most definitely thought up by a man.

Did I seriously just write PEAR of pants? I must be hungry. But if that were the case, shouldn't I write "a chocolate of pants"?? What the heck is wrong with me...

hate that button!

oh so true!

I ignore those too. If a coworker ever has a need for a button to replace a lost one we can just cut out that button and hand it over. Actually I think I'll go cut them all out.

I live in yoga pants. What are these "buttons" of which you speak?

I polled a friend, she couldn't come up with a good reason for them either. Although, I have to say, the larger I am, and the tighter the pants, the more these buttons keep the clasp from popping loose. Not pretty, I assure you.

First time I've commented but I love your blog! I *think* the button on the inside is a spare, in case the main button falls off! And I've had many of those button dents in my belly at the end of the day too, hate that!

I spit in that button's general direction!
