One of my favorite words is bother. Just look at it. Bother. Isn't it beautiful. It is living art.

Oxford: bother >verb 1 take the trouble to do. 2 worry, disturb, or upset. 3 (bother with/about) feel concern about or interest in. >noun 1 trouble and fuss. 2 (a bother) a cause of trouble or fuss. >exclamation chiefly Brit. used to express mild irritation. -ORIGIN originally in the dialect senses 'noise, chatter' or 'confuse with noise': from Anglo-Irish

Whoever invented bother, thank you.

You can choose to bother.

You can choose not to bother

You can choose to be bothered.

You can choose not to be bothered.

There are things that used to bother me. But, no more.

There are people that used to bother me. Again, no more.

The things and people are still there. They're still doing their usual bothering. Maybe I'm just used to it. Or, maybe I gave up.

Bother can be short lived. Or it can be long lasting.

Don't get me wrong. I do appreciate a really good, intense, short lived bother now and then. The long lasting ones? Those are some scary bad bothers.

Bother. It's all around. Do with it as you choose.

Well, visting "Disarranging Mine" is never a bother.
