    Re: english grammar

    That's way too much typing

    You've sold me, too.

    I thank Mother Earth that you're here to save me with grace

    I'm sold on your explanation.
    Me thinks, and credit goes to jwschang on this, it's

    "I am sold (X by you) on (the basis of) your explanation." (passive)

    Compare:

    "You sold me X on the basis of your explanation." (active)

    Cas

    adjective adjective adjective
    I can't seem to stop myself from writing the word 'adjective'
