It drives people absolutely nuts when others speak of themselves in the third person. Me, I’m listening to the conversation while attempting to decipher which part of the story is really capturing the essence of the speaker.
I love writing in the third person as it is very cathartic. First person experiences, second person explains, third person ties it up in a neat little bow. Yes indeed, life as I see it. My prerogative you say and I heartily agree.
