Deciphering the code.

I've discovered that, more times than most, when I offer up that I "don't care" about something, the exact opposite of that is usually closer to the truth. The fact is that, sometimes, I care more about any given thing than I really should. It's true. Still, given that curious insight, I'll prolly go ahead and stick with saying it, for a couple of reasons ... "I don't care" rolls off the tongue with incredible ease and, two, "I care too much" would likely invite some serious sidelong glances. For what it's worth.

"I don't care" isn't a phrase I grew up saying but my husbands family say it all the time and bothers me. To me it sounds harsh and rude. If I'm going to offer something to someone I don't expect to hear, "I don't care". If they don't care then why should I bother?

I prefer, "I don't mind" that at least is said with a smile. Or "whatever's easiest for you"...

Is caring so wrong?

I'm kinda starting a war against apathy. It's so overrated.
