Have you ever wondered about the word "I" and also why is it capitalized and the "m" in me is not nor either is the "y" in you ? Of course I have, I wonder about a lot of things. Well, I have an answer for you. It isn't because we think of ourselves at a much higher level than we do of other people. No, it all began back many years ago with your friendly neighborhood printer. It all had to do with setting print.
First, let me tell you that the first person back in Middle English was expressed with the word "ich". It was eventually shortened to "i" in lowercase. Printers had a hard time setting the lower case "i". The letter was dropped unintentionally or it would run together with an other word. To solve this problem, the printers started using the upper case "I" instead. The practice stuck and to this day a capital "I" is used to mean me or you in the first person. Now, I wonder why you very rarely hear about that "second" person?
Now I am going to head off to the flea market with my lovely wife. I haven't been there for many weeks. My wife went with my son last Sunday when I was at the Top Fuel Drag races. Don't forget, have a great day today, you hear? BTW I think we may have broken a record low temperature here today. It got down to 38 degrees at 06:30 this morning but it is warming up fast, it is now 43 at 08:15.
