TODAY IS BLASÉ DAY
On Blase’ Day, we have permission to be blase’ toward just about anything.
Of French origin meaning to be indifferent or bored with life, unimpressed, as or as if from an excess of worldly pleasures.
Unimpressed by pumpkin spice everything? It’s okay to be blase’ about it today. Heard the same pop song for the 4th time today? Be blase’. Nothing on TV tonight? Just be blase’. Bored by your friend’s team winning their 266th game in a row? Yep, you got it. Whether it’s that 20 page Christmas letter, your mom’s constant picture taking or the fifth night of leftover pizza, you can be blase’.
