Lesson #1: Couldn't Care Less
I don't know how I get talked into these things. I really don't.
Anyway, today we're going to discuss an oft-misused phrase: "couldn't care less."
Yeah, that's right. Couldn't.
See, if I say, "I could care less if that wackjob Sabretooth wants to kick my ass," that means that I do care, at least a little. If it's possible for me to care less, I have to care to some extent in the first place.
Which I don't. That guy comes after me again, I'll slice him like a Thanksgiving turkey.
I don't care at all that he has it in for me. Therefore, I couldn't possibly care any less. Get it?
Couldn't. Care. Less.
Remember it. Use it.
