The Imme

In Uncategorized on August 2, 2010 at 11:47 pm

In the language of the ancient Imme, there is no second or third person.

Everything is expressed as “I.”

Instead of “what did you do yesterday?” one of them says “I went sailing yesterday,” and the other one is prompted to say “I played with my kids yesterday.”

There’s no “he should” or “you shouldn’t.” Instead it is “I would” or “I don’t.”

All statements are statements about oneself. Yet these are the least selfish people to ever have walked the planet. To elicit the appropriate response from another, one simply has to express how he feels, and then wait.
