Bucks in a Row

Frequent Photo

From the ridge along our property a row of bucks gaze warily at my border collie and I.

  • Nice. Not often a person gets to see that many deer at one time.

  • Cool picture. I think 9/10ths of people get the me/I thing wrong because they don’t ask themselves what the predicate is. It makes sense to say “gaze warily at me” but not “gaze warily at I.” I however, being a Twitter fool, though poopy pedant was asking you to reply on Twitter, where the form would be @poopypedant.

    • I ask myself what a “predicate” is all the time. Fortunately, I take my dog everywhere so the sentence comes out sounding good. I only use “I” when I don’t have my dog.

      9/10ths of the people I know are smarter than me anyway, and they figure out what I meant to say. Like in “it was I, not me.” but most people think that “me” and “I” are the same person anyway. I think the reason that everybody thinks the Chineese are so much smarter than us is because they write in stick figures and “me” and “I” are the same bundle of sticks, and that way they don’t get confused, but they DO have carry-on sentences, oh well, so I try to talk so it doesn’t hurt peoples ears too bad, but you don’t read with your ears, you read with your “eyes”. So, a lot of words sound the same, so you have to right them out. I wish I had a stick figure keyboard. I could of done this write.

      Does that make sense? I thought not… Just kidding. I, and a lot of other folks are glad that I’m not a writer.
