The Trick

"The trick is to act like you don't care. The more you care, the more likely you are to over think it."

"But I enjoy caring."

"Heh, thats what you think."

"It is what I think! Its not the end result, its the passion of the chase, the thrill of the unatain..."

"And to do that you have to care, to have a script and a plan?"

"No...But they help.  Why can't I care?"

"Why should you?"

"That doesn't answer my question.  Don't dance around it, why can't I care?"

"Because, once you decide, once you have your plan, you close down everything else.  You forget that there are no straight lines, and that what is normal to you is cold, distant and inhuman to most other people.  Thats why."
