A Word in Edgewise

"Me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me."

"You, you, you, you, you, you, you, you, you, you."

"Me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me."

"You, you, you, you, you, you, you, you, you, you."

"Me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me."

"You, you, you, you, you--me--you, you, you, you, you."

"Why are you trying to change the subject?"

  1. Oh, this was a grand grin-bringer to accompany my coffee this morning, Kirk! I always (don't) enjoy my (least) favorite variation on the theme: "I, I, I, I, I, I, I . . ."

    WV=might. Well, indeed!

  3. Ha ~ late-breaking memory. Beatles song: I, I, me, me, mine.

  4. It's also the name of George Harrison's autobiography. In one of his last interviews before he died, John Lennon complained that Harrison wrote about every session player he ever worked with, but only mentioned Lennon a couple of times. Sounds like Harrison wanted to change the subject!

  5. Very good twist on your original post! Yes, I think Harrison ended up very embittered about simply not counting and wasn't afraid to show it.

  6. Kirk, this reminds me of a letter my wife and I got last year from her sister listing every foul deed we'd done to her for the past 40 years, and my wife back to the time she was 6 years old. Presented the letter to a therapist who called it classic narcissism. My sister-in-law, in a two page letter, used the word "I" 55 times.

    "I, I, sir!"
