What's so wrong with mud?

Stuck in the mud.....
More accurately, at the moment I am smeared with mud (thanks Ollie)
What is the difference between apathy and indifference?
Apathy means I care, but I don't do anything.
Indifference means, no, I really don't care.
In about 20 minutes I will begin to care
I'm leaving the house and don't want to go out with muddy clothes and arms
I will bathe and change clothes.
Life is like that too-20 minutes can mean the difference between caring and not caring.
Same mud, different context.
No wonder life is soooooo damn complicated.
And this-not a poem, not a paragraph, just a random thought fart
About muddy paws and life.
Brilliant? Give it 20 minutes and maybe it will be.
