Will you please excuse me while I turn into the Grumpy Grammarian and correct something that has been driving me crazy for a while now?
It's she and I. Not her and I.
For example: If you and your BFF went to Target to get a box of OtterPops you wouldn't say, "Her and I went to Target." You would say, "She and I went to Target."
I know that you probably read that and thought, "Duh, of course." I'm not saying that you make that mistake. I'm saying that every other person on the planet makes that mistake. I've been hearing it everywhere, from everyone. At the bank, at the Pod, at church, in the store, on TV. And every time I hear it, or its counter part, "Him and I," I get the creeps. No, really, it makes me feel all anxious inside. Like seeing 2+2=5. And I have to stop myself from gently correcting everyone because who wants to be that girl?
But it does not suppress the urge to throw a dictionary at the offender's head.
And so to stop that tragedy I will give you a very simple rule:
If you dropped you from the sentence what would you be left with? Did her really go to Target?
That is all. Carry on. And please don't be afraid to talk to me. I don't usually carry a dictionary.
