As a child, I remember learning the butter test.
We all know the butter test, right?
Plucking a buttercup flower out of the ground and holding it up to someones chin and if the reflection of the yellow flower showed up on their chin that meant they liked butter. Just one of those silly little things you do.
Really though, who DOES not like butter???
I must have taught this to the girls also at some point. Cause that is what you do.
I have a cute memory of Linds from when she was about 5, and as cute as a button. She had such a cute dialect/speech impediment…I loved that she changed words around all the time and still to this day, I use some of the wrong ways she said things.
But this specific memory we are at the ball park. I know, shocking.
We were walking along heading to meet up w/ Coach and Lo. When Lindsay spotted a cute yellow
weed flower. She ran to it so excited, pulled it out of the ground and motioned for me to crouch down….I did. She held it up to my chin and exclaimed:
“YOU LIKE PEANUT BUTTER”
I remember laughing and agreeing with her…YES, I LOVE Peanut Butter!!
Truth be told, I could smack someone for a Reese’s Peanut Butter cup…..But I am well aware that violence never leads to good candy. Been there, done that.
And speaking of buttercups, here is a video clip from One of my most favorite movies….There’s Something about Mary. If you have not seen it, you simply MUST.
It is rated R, and not for kiddos…but I can watch it over and over and over…..So much laughing, it is nearly an ab workout!!!
Build ME Up Buttercup
You will have this song in your head for the rest of the day…..and YES, you are welcome!!!
What silly things did you learn and pass on to the next generation?
