Doodiligents

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: doo dili gents

Sentence: When Tress was having a bad hair day, everyone knew it. The men in her life learned to stay clear if her ends were split or if her mane problem was her coiffure. They were examples of doodiligents and they knew Tress would cut, tease and brush them off if they cropped her style. They knew the fall out would be permanent and the best treatment was to streak out of her way and not frost her off worse. By extension, the mane reason they liked her was that her locks were to dye for, shorn nuff. Just don't get her dander up...

Etymology: Due Diligence (Investigation and analysis a prudent entrepreneur, owner, executive, or lender does in making business decisions.) & Doo (hair-do)
