Button up, so to speak

Tzniut/modesty isn't the only reason for buttoning up--I recently found out the hard way that one can get one's tzitzit/ritual fringe entangled around a button. It took me about three minutes to free my tallit. Now, before I put on my tallit and tefillin, I roll up my cuff twice, which is just enough to turn the button up and tuck it safety away under the cuff, where nothing can get caught on it. I strongly recommend this precaution for those who lay tefillin--I haven't yet had this problem on a Shabbat/Sabbath or Yom Tov/holiday, when tefillin aren't worn.

[As promised, I snuck in a post when possible. :) This will probably be my last opportunity today. Shabbat Shalom.]
