Monday Muse on Thursday 17 November 2016

Good morning punters, panters, flatulators, dancers, artists and generally fabulous people…

I have not done a Monday Muse for a very long time, and of course it is not Monday – it is Thursday, but really I don’t care.

‘I really don’t care’. Is an interesting statement isn’t it? It can be interpreted in so many ways…

I really don’t care …. because I am grumpy and don’t want to care
I really don’t care … about your feelings, and don’t let the door hit you on the way out.
I really don’t care … because you have pissed me off, and I don’t love you anymore.
I really don’t care … because you have been complaining for weeks and weeks, and you still haven’t done anything about your life.
I really don’t care … because there is nothing more I can do.
I really don’t care … because no matter what I do – it doesn’t make a difference – in politics, in love, in my work, in my life.
I really don’t care … about what I am supposed to do today because the day is so amazing, the sun is beautiful, the air is fizzing, and I have four furbabies to play with…

My point?

Make sure that when you say ‘I don’t care’ that you make it clear…

I don’t really care – in this moment, tomorrow I will be in a better mood.
I really don’t care’ – because you have pissed me off and I am waiting for an apology.
I really don’t care – because I have given you advice, let you cry on my shoulder (all over my new white linen dress) and still you have done nothing.
I really don’t care – because I have done everything, and it never seems to be enough.
I really don’t care – because I don’t realize that the smallest thing I do makes a difference.
I really don’t care .. because if I play in the sun, suck up the fresh air, play with the furbabies I will be in 7th heaven.

So my challenge for you today – after this pointless diatribe; and if you have got this far and are saying “Really Jackie? Really?” – I don’t care; the challenge is – post one thing you really don’t care about today…

I’ll start – today I don’t care about time…
