Iris.320x320

My wife is amazing and we have a daughter!

Iris was born at 20:40:53 on 5th November, which meant that Sarah’s labours were accompanied by the sound of fireworks.

I am now enjoying the grammatical conundrums that occur because Iris’s initial matches the first person pronoun.

“I and S are in the hospital” now means something different from “S and I are in the hospital.”

Henceforth, contextual disambiguation will be required for abbreviated sentences in which I is/am the singular subject.

I can also legitimately write “I is cool”.
