“The royal we, man…”
It’s been brought to my attention that certain readers (both of you) find “the royal we” to be distracting (some even say it’s “infuriating”!). Fair enough. From here on out, I will be me. The thinking was that getting away from “I” would be freeing somehow — especially since this isn’t meant to be a personal journal. But the reality is that it comes off as self-important. Whoops!
