    This one is always a pain in the arse to spell too I swear!
    N-e-ways how in the world do you spell botanear/ Yes i know that is spelled wrong but I can't figure it out for the life of me and even the computer isn't spelling it right, giving me other options not what I want.

    it's the thing the guys wear on their jackest at like prom or any dance.... HELP!?!?!?!?!?

    Well, if there is a link to the writings, just tell us.
    And do you write it frenchwise ?
    I mean "boutonnière" ?
    There where you put a flower on festive days ?
    Thank you Poppa blues.
    I've just learned "buttonhole of a lapel"

    I might put a paragraph or two as a teaser but not going to let anyone read the finished product, zampano that is how I am...I want to see if I can get it published and turned into a book! D

    and I don't know...I didn't do it the french way in my story...should I do you think?

    This is really interesting, because that word is not in my Oxford Paperback Dictionary. The first time I've ever come across that sort of thing before.

    And with my being English, I'm not even sure what the damned thing is ...

    Is it what we simply call a 'buttonhole'? Not the hole itself (so to speak), but the thing that goes in it - some flower, usually.
