'Don't Care' the musical

I was working hard the other day at writing my first musical.

Surprised, not as much as I.

-----------------------------------

You see the other day while I was talking to someone and they were really boring, and then they...kept on being boring.

My brain shut the door and posted a sign "I am not talking to this person."

But, what .....wait, I just can't walk out in the middle of the conversation!!! What do I do?

"I don't care" said the voice in my head. Literally, I heard it, I had to look at the person I was talking to and gauge whether I had said that out loud or not.

Hum, still talking....must have been just in my head.

Good.

The person I was talking to grabbed a file and starting talking about something else.

"don't care, don't care, don't care...." repeated the voice in my head.

But maybe I should care, I mean

"I don't care, don't care, don't care, don't care......."

But I think this might be important....

"don't care"

I gave up, it was easier, and my brain was right...I didn't care.

So, without my being distracted by trying to actually pay attention to this person, I was free to join in!

"DON'T CARE, DON'T CARE, don't care, don't care, don't care...."

Had kind of a ring to it when you say it over and over and over....so I started to add a little melody

"la,la,la,....don't care, don't care.....la, la,la"

"don't care"

"don't"

"CARE!!!" I was now joined by a chorus of voices in head! Wow, that was loud!

They started a little dance number, the voice in my head that had just finished "Attack of the Theater People" was doing Jazz Hands with the biggest smile. Oh, and the Dr. Horrible gang is there too!

I was just about to start designing costumes when

"So what do you think?"

Wow, that was not one of the voices in my head that was from....

Oh, shit

Must not say "don't care", must not say "don't care"

"Great idea!" Big (trying to look like I was paying attention) smile.

"I knew you would like it, thanks for your support"

As I left the meeting I was thinking, what have a gotten myself into...... the chorus in my put me back in perspective with a rousing chours of "DON'T CARE!"
