More buttons. In Boerne, TX, April 2011.

I love smiley buttons. I own two already, which is why I didn’t shell out for these buttons when I found them in an antique store in Boerne, TX, last summer. But it was a bit odd to find them in an antique store. Are smileys really that old?

But sure enough, tonight my wife and I were watching Back to the Future Part II, and in one of the scenes where Doc and Marty go to the future — 2015, just a few years away now! — and Marty stops at an antique store, there in the window is a display of “antique” smiley faces!

Smiley faces are antiques! (So is that Macintosh computer, which is funny, because I'm typing this post on a Mac right now.)

We don’t have flying cars or self-drying clothes or hover boards, but Back to the Future Part II did get one thing right: smiley faces are antiques.:)
