The Elephant's Teardrop

My friend, Doreen, wasn't kidding when she told me that she'd found a button with the weirdest shape. Like a geometrically sculpted blob of gum or a dollop of custard, it's one of the oddest formed buttons I've ever seen. Whipped and swirled, this pale globule emits a very soft Art Deco appearance. Photographing it was a frustrating operation. I took twenty or thirty inadequate pictures from every angle until I finally got the button to sit up by stabbing its shank into a piece of Silly Putty. This is creamed corn light-colored that it almost resembles a shard of ivory.
