I thought you meant real business. Like building, owning and operating. London's largest theater, for instance. Actors, carpenters, seamstresses, crew to pay, bribes to pay, security to mount, politics to navigate, 3000 paying customers to be fed and watered every afternoon, each promised a spectacle greater than the last. One hundred and seventy Royal Command Performances for our queen and our king. Have you considered the logistics of mounting the Battle of Shrewsbury in the banqueting hall at Hampton Court? Please don't. It would make you so tired. And yet, in all the years that I have run my vast, complex and spectacularly successful business, Thomas, I have indeed found the time to think and to write down the pretty thoughts you mention and which, in my experience, bring immense pleasure to those who seek mere diversion or respite from this veil of tears, without which, it would all be about as pointless as... Well, about as pointless as you, Sir Thomas.
