Double, double, toil and trouble,
Fire burn, and caldron bubble.
- the witches from Shakespeare's Macbeth
Thoil, thoil, mark-up double
Designers spurned; avoiding trouble.
- adapted by JoyD from Shakespeare's Macbeth
"Thoil" is my latest new word. Wiktionary tells us that thoil means to be able to justify the expense of a purchase.
"I loved those Manolo Blahnik's but I couldn't thoil them in addition to my new Theory pants and blazer."We probably need to say "I can't thoil that!" more often than we do! I had set a clothing budget and of course, I have overspent my assigned February clothing allowance owing to a friend's recommendation and visit to Holt Renfrew and Tory Burch. We can always blame our friends if we can't take responsibility for our own selves.

The witches of Macbeth inspire me to continue . . .
Stilletto of Jimmy Choo,
In the shopping bag, first of queue
Theory pants and Armani top
Burberry trench, do not stop
Tory Burch boots, Minkoff bags
Caroline Herrara dress so nags
Chanel suit, and shoes to match
Earrings, cuffs, add to the batch
For the charm of economic trouble
Like a hell-broth thoil then rubble.
