A Stitch of Comedy

A Stitch of Comedy

It was a comfortable three weeks beyond my annual ironing day when I discovered that one of my five shirts was missing a button. Steamed, I grudgingly set about to undertake the dreaded process of repair – finding time and a spare button, scissors, needle and thread.

After what seemed like an eternity, I secured a new button snugly into place and donned my shirt. Despite efforts to closely follow directions, it quickly became apparent that things had gotten all fouled up…

How could I have sewn the button on the left side of my shirt?!

Rather than start over, undoing everything I’d already accomplished, I chose instead to simply cut another buttonhole into the other side of my shirt – after all (I thought), once it’s buttoned, who’ll know the difference?

    • hahaha 😂 ik ben blij dat mijn verhaal je aan het lachen heeft gemaakt, lieve Inge! Lachen is goed. Ik heb het gisteren geschreven, en ja – ik heb een overhemd waar een knoop aan moet worden genaaid. 😆 Dat was mijn inspiratie. I appreciate your comments my dear friend & wish you a wonderful day! 🌹🌹🤗 TY
