I can't write any more "I Can" statements. I mean, I can write more "I Can" statements, but I can't stand writing any more "I Can" statements. Maybe tomorrow I can write more "I Can" statements, but I can't write any more "I Can" statements today. I can only write this "I Can't" statement about why I can't write any more "I Can" statements. I can do that, can't I?
This is me, just going insane working on a graduate assignment where I have to rewrite a gaggle of "I Can" statements. I'm having one of those moments where the word you keep staring at starts to look weird and you start saying it out loud while over-enunciating. "I ca-nuh...." Oh, it's just me? *Fine, then.
*It's a real thing.... semantic satiation. Look it up. Geez.
