    GRRRR!!

    What really pushes my buttons lately? The way some people insist on rating other people's attractiveness on a scale of 1-10. Or on a scale of anything for that matter. As if a persons worth can be reduced to a mere number based on looks. If I hear one more person...

    That Would Be Who ....

    And that would be my man and if I told you what he did to push my buttons this would be x-rated. Does that qualify as an answer?

    Oooh What Does This Button Do?

    Gee well, I've never really had them pressed so I don't know what they are. I've gotten upset but never so much that I've gotten angry or pissed off. I pray I never find out which is the button that must not be pressed.
