Guest post: Tale as old as time...

A Christmas tale, as told by Intuition ; )

I was talking to my colleague, and this exchange took place:

Intuition: Did I tell you I was thinking of getting an Xbox? Well I just did, and boy am I feeling buyer’s remorse

Colleague: Tsk. Was wife involved in decision?

I: Oh yes she was, she gave permission for me to buy for her to give me for Christmas

C: Then it’s alright. You didn’t buy it. She did. Therefore, logically, no buyer’s remorse as far as you’re concerned.

I: Wow, that just made all the guilt go away; You’re a genius!

C: Ah. It is a very old solution. C.f. Genesis “The woman gave it to me, and I did eat”.

The "I" in "I was talking to my colleague, and this exchange took place" is which "I"?

Same "I" that preceded later speech or "I" as in you?
