Enough About That

Dear Diary,

I don't know if you know this, but I am turning 30 in approximately one week. I can remember writing an entry when I turned 25, and thinking I was SO OLD. 25, ha! I could eat 25 for breakfast. I'm not going to dwell on this. Just thought I'd point it out.

I'd like to take some time to discuss my favorite word of the day: business. This word is extremely versatile. It has more uses than any other word I can think of at the moment. (Besides "play". That one has tons, seriously.) Anyway, let's explore:

business - something unpleasant, as in: "I don't want to mess with this 'paying bills' business."

business - a wacky new development in someone's clothes/hair, as in: "What's this flouncy skirt business?"

business - private parts, as in: "I found myself face-to-face with the business end of a male stripper."

business - verbal abuse, as in: "The BHE gave me the business for puking all over his car again."

business - serious threat, as in: "You better stop it. I mean business."

business - qualifications for, as in "I have no business raising children."

business - as in my business is none of yours.

Is there a better word? Not today.

Love, Fluffy
