When “You” Means “Me”

The dinosaur is talking about himself the whole time, even though he switches from first person (me) in his first sentence, to second person (you) in the second sentence. He uses “you” in a generic sense, which I mentioned a while back.


What the dinosaur is saying would be smoother if he had stuck with either first person or second person the whole time. Try reading it to yourself each way. Which do you like better?
