button hole

Hi There,

I have 2 ideas for dull activities that I think you may enjoy. I would love to see these on the site.

1. Finding enjoyment out of drawing people’s elbows and knees.

2. Measuring button holes, including the circumference and diameter.

Hi Milissa,

Thanks. If it’s OK, let me address the second one first. It’s deals with something I’ve never thought of before, the issue of how big to make the button hole. It’s something of course tailors grapple with every day.

If the hole is too big, the button won’t do its job. If too small, the button won’t do its job either as it can’t fit through the hole.

As for drawing elbows and knees, never heard of that before either. It probably qualifies as dull. It certainly would be less exciting that most parts of the body one often sees drawings of.

Sincerely (dull men are always sincere, mostly),
