I just told my friend that I’m proud of her.
And it got me thinking of where the origins of that phrase lie, and how weird it actually sounds. Do people for whom English isn’t a first language think it’s weird?
I am proud of you. I am proud of you. I am proud of you.
It keeps sounding weirder.
It’s like that time I kept repeating the word “cup” to myself until it sounded utterly alien and I was like “WTF?”
Can you tell I’m not busy today?
