Sometimes one is struck by wild thoughts that are strange and baffling. And the Why, How, When, Who and Where questions can actually drive one crazy. Reminding myself of how busy I have been, I realised using “Busy as Hell” repeatedly. This made me instantly break my conversation with myself to dwell on the source and origin of this term.
Who must have invented this term and Why? Just replacing the word Hell with Heaven can make the term more positive so why the idea of creating a term “Busy as Hell” superseded “Busy as Heaven”. Hmmm…..It’s funny to suggest here the tiny possiblity that the inventor might have believed Hell to be a more crowded place with more work than Heaven ;]
