When It's Hot It's Hot
Now read this one and chuckle. Then read my take on it.
This rises to the level of "wrong" in so many ways I am not sure I can parse it correctly. There are so many double entendres and possible warped interpretations, and yet one supposes that the message that there our diamonds for sale within is conveyed.
First, and I think of my Beautiful Beloved Better Half as I write this, one does not want to "set off her fireworks." Possibly the writer of the sign's blurb had something else in mind.
Then I think of "hot" as a descriptor of diamonds, and perhaps I have read too many detective stories, but "hot diamonds" generally are not something one wants to be "caught" with. Too, diamonds, both legitimate and "hot" are often referred to as "ice." Well, there is a conundrum.
I do believe, though, that were BBBH to receive a new diamond her eyes would light up. She is definitely a member of the "Ooh! Shiny" School of Esthetics.
Perhaps I should stop in. If they truly have hot diamonds, maybe they could cut me a deal.
