You and I

Monday, October 10, 2005

One of the most misconstrued phrases in English is the mixing-up of subjective case ‘I’ with objective case ‘me’. We had a school-teacher at our church last night say, “The best thing for you and I to do…” Also, as our choir was practicing I Wonder as I Wander, I noticed that the third line of the first verse mentions something to the extend of “poor or’nry people like you and like I”. Grrrrrrrrrrr.

Mom and Dad promised each of us children a dime every time we got it right until we learned. Unfortunately, we worked so hard at it that we learned it before getting paid any more than a dollar!
