Me Myself Personally

Velvet Verbosity's latest challenge: "myself." Ergo:

I have a friend. She likes to use the phrase, "Me myself personally," as in, "me myself personally, I can't abide a know-it-all." Or, "I never watch that kind of movie, me myself personally." Given my history of deep disdain for other people's grammatical mistakes, superfluity, and other personal quirks, it should irritate the hell out of me. But some part of me finds it to be a charming iteration of self, a progressive statement of being, a declaration of individual value, tripled. And I like it. I applaud her, and her joyfully repetitive celebration of herself. Me. Myself. Personally.

That was a new one for me, myself personally, and not one I'm probably going to adopt. Nice 100 words. It made me smile.

You're a good friend to find that endearing and not correct her! :)
