    Commerce: The art of buying a horse for $25 and selling it for $2,500

    Profit Margin:
    Some of us laugh
    Some of us cry
    Some of us smoke
    Some of us lie
    But it's all just the way
    that we cope with our lives...

    Unicorn: Literally 1-corn - a limit dieters give themselves at picnic gatherings; a variation of the tricorn ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tricorne ) which is essentially a round head covering; a beast, similar in appearance to a horse with a long pointed/spiraled protuberance growing from its forehead, of which only one in love can see; an unattainable paragon of beauty.

    Enchant Me

    Your very being a desire for answer
    Lament not your unassailable mystery
    Enchant me with your dreams

    Origami: A simple paper-folding technique that can be used as an exercise in futility, the Japanese make it look easy but it isn't

    Some of us smoke
    Some of us lie

    Feng Shui: "Wind Water" Chinese philosophic system. Those who don’t like it call it a superstition with no demonstrable evidence showing it is beneficial, yadda, yadda, yadda. Those who like it use it to orient themselves to what’s around them and enjoy whatever benefits they enjoy.

    Vintage: The term only makes sense when it refers to wine in which case it is the year and place where the wine was made. That doesn’t stop it from referring to something a tad bit too old and out-of-date to be considered “new”, but not quite ancient enough to be a collectible “antique”.

    Antique: Belonging to a bygone age and therefore sought after. People will buy antique items that have become so obsolete that people have to ask "What the devil is that?!"

    Devil:
    Some of us laugh
    Some of us cry
    Some of us smoke
    Some of us lie
    But it's all just the way
    that we cope with our lives...

    Devil: The opposite of angel. It is often thought of as male while the angel is female. It is usually well-dressed and handsome with a quick wit and eager to get you to sign your soul away. Of course, once you sign and meet it in hell appearances change.

    Angel: 1- A representant of heaven. 2-Name of a rather relentless character in "Tess of the Ubervilles". Mollified after getting a fever in Curitiba of all places.

    You tube: or Euphonium... Instrument not too unlike a Tuba, also called a Baritone Horn; YouTube: a place to explore music and/or videos that whimsically may or may not be available albeit listed.
