I'd invite you to mark Indifference Day... but I couldn't be bothered

'The poster children of ‘Indifference Day’ can be Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston'

It's a well-versed truth - the opposite of love isn't hate, it's indifference. Unfortunately, indifference alludes to the fact you are dead inside, which is an awful shame because it deserves its time in the sun.

I sound like Hannibal Lecter, but indifference is infinitely more empowering than love and so much easier to manage.

Hence, I may get on to Hallmark and see would they be interested in promoting an 'Indifference Day'. Perhaps on a full moon in the middle of Mercury retrograde when no stars are aligned.
