But probably saying things like "*Good* Yoon Ha. > *Don't* forget your socks." Hehe. I frequently address myself in the second person, eg. when I did something stupid, i'd exclaim to myself, "you stupid! whatcha do that for?!" Or, when I'm thinking, "what do you think is the best way to go about this?" I also tend to use the first person *plural* -- "let's do this now". Or, "let's see... how do we do this again?" And when I'm talking about myself, sometimes I use the first person singular to refer to the speaker, and the second person singular for the listener. > (And yes, it's fairly easy to tell I'm weird. =^p) Well, relative to some (most?) of us here, you're quite normal ;-) T -- Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.
