A chat that led to a challenge:
her: but i’m tired of I
11:43 AM me: yeah. lets try to blog without I for the next week.
Can we refer to ourselves in the third person? “Jenna is tired. Jenna did not get any croissants today.”
11:44 AM me: Okay, but no avoiding blogging because you can’t figure out how not to use I.
How about “we?”
11:46 AM her: okay fine.
i just posted about it.. not using I
11:47 AM me: ah, but you used we.
11:48 AM this will be difficult.
11:49 AM her: i know
but i hadn’t started yet!
11:50 AM me: I guess I’ll be using a lot of passive sentence structuring.
Or I mean, “a lot of passive sentence structuring will be used.”
her: oh dear. this could get tedious
