the die is cast -- iron
What you see above is a shiny metal shirt button. I’ve got four of them. The question is, what do I do with them?

The buttons come off a Casino Wear pimp-o-tronic club shirt, sort of a guyabera-style piece. I wore it exactly once, for a “pimp and ho” costume party at a friend’s house a couple of years ago. It was a big hit, matching well with my purple-and-leopard-print widebrim hat and walking cane; one guy raved about how he’d wear it for a clubbing night, and a couple of the ladies cozied up to it too. But I never did find another occasion for it, so it’s been mouldering in my closet ever since. (I’ve still got the hat and cane — not ready to ditch those just yet.)

Today, I finally decided to chuck it, just to get it out of my sight. The only thing that kept me from doing so sooner was the buttons. They’re unique. I usually don’t consider such things on a piece of outmoded clothing, but I really liked these little numbers.

But the shirt had to go. So I cut off the buttons and trashed the shirt.

This isn’t normal behavior for me. I’ve got absolutely no sewing/tailoring skills. So I’m wondering what the use is for me to keep these four buttons. Basically, it’s just more junk for me to accumulate.

But what the heck, you never know. And they do look cool. Plus, I’ve found I can spin them for short durations, like mini-tops — now you’re talking fun!
