just reminding you in case you forgot

G’morning! Let us start this day with a grammar lesson. It goes like this: Sometimes, I swear to god, you are supposed to use “me.” It’s an object. Use it after prepositions and verbs. Please. Please just stop saying “between you and I.”

Look, I’m like 90% for descriptivism vs. prescriptivism but that 10% of me just needs everyone to realize they’re allowed to say “me” and I’m sorry if you were scared out of ever saying it because of some elementary school grammar teacher.

And also for the record singular “they” is perfectly acceptable and useful.
