    Default Please explain the meaning

    "You say anything about me, but i am 'Anything but ordinary',

    Here I am anything but ordinary means you can think anything about me because I am not ordinary

    Thanks

    I don't understand the first part of your sentence. "I am anything but ordinary" means that of all the many, many ways you can describe me, "ordinary" is not one that applies.

    Please remember to give your threads titles that tell us what you're aksing about. "Anything but ordinary" would have been a good choice.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I suspect the first part of the sentence should have read "You can say anything [you like] about me ..."
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
