Very fond of words

by Ozymandias

Very fond of words,
this man who always draws crowds
to his life's story.

    Yes, a bit of a dig at people who are too fond of talking about themselves. Did you know the most common word in spoken English is the pronoun "I"?

Back in my youthful twenties, when people correctly identified me as an asshole, I threw a party of safety pins allotted 'n' taken away each time the possessor of pins said I or me. My pens were promptly taken from me. I guess I was too fond of those two words. Humility spoke so I got safety pins fer my Depends. Wink

I just want to say...haha...considering Nietzsche said...along with the Buddha...that the self is a grammatical error, he certainly filled his works with 'I'. Very clever Rory.
Cheers...Harry
