SoCS – Do You Like Butter?

Stream of Consciousness Saturday is brought to you every week by Linda Hill. Check out her blog for the rules and the contribution of other bloggers.

This week’s prompt:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “butter.” Use it as a noun, use it as a verb, use it any way you’d like. Have fun!


There is only one scientific way to find out if you like butter. You must go outside, pick a buttercup and place it under your chin. If your chin turns yellow you like butter!

Did you ever do that as a kid? We certainly did. What a fun memory. We had no idea that the shiny petals of a buttercup would always reflect the light back and turn our chins yellow.

Now my mind turns to music as it often does on a Saturday. First up “Build Me Up Buttercup” by The Foundations.

And since we’re talking butter, let’s listen to another oldie that talks about butter. I couldn’t remember who sang it though – I had to look it up – The Newbeats! See, that was not in my stream of consciousness this morning. Now to go make a piece of toast – with butter!

  1. We always did that too. And everybody liked butter!
    I had both of those records in my youth, though now I find The Newbeats very irritating. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I remembered holding the buttercups under the chin, but couldn’t remember what this revealed. Thanks for the reminder! We both got that build me up butter cup song. It’s a good one!

  3. According to the lighting when we did the ‘butter experiment’, we also judged the degree of ‘butter love’ the ‘patient’ had by the intensity of the yellow reflection. Such scientists we were as kids! 😉

    1. Kids know no boundaries in their thinking. My 3year-old granddaughter was explaining how our kidneys work to me earlier today. (She was right!).

  4. We also used the buttercup to determine the answer to “do you love—–(fill in the blank)”. It went along with winding the apple stem while reciting the alphabet. Fun reminders, Maggie.

  5. Awesome post!! I almost went this direction since for some reason “Build Me Buttercup” has been on my brain every morning for about a month. Way before Linda coincidentally picked “butter” as our prompt. I have terrible insomnia as of late. I wake up with songs in my head and cannot go back to sleep. I think this one is in a fairly popular commercial. I hear it without consciously hearing it while watching TV and then dream about it. The Newbeats song is a classic keeper. It will probably be added to my nightly rotation. LOL.

    1. It was the first butter thing to pop in my mind. I hope your insomnia passes. I have gone back to falling asleep to relaxing instrumental music myself.

  6. I always thought it was a dandelion that could tell whether you liked butter.

    Love that song by The Newbeats. Maybe the fact that my aunt couldn’t stand iut is why…
