    I like myself fine

    Dear teachers,

    "I like myself fine" means "I am satisfied with myself". Is thar right?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you in advance.

    (I know 'that' was a typo, but you may not know that there is a cse where 'that' is (or at least was) used; it's a regional variant of 'there', used chiefly (in my experience) in the whalers' call - when a whale surfaces and spouts: 'Thar she blows'. )

    Dear BobK,

    Terribly sorry I donít understand your explanation at all.
    Could you please kindly explain that again?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you in advance.

    There was a typo in Bob's response.

    He mean to say that 'thar' in your question was a typo (it should have been 'that'), but the word 'thar' could be used in a context that he explained.

    Back to your original question. You are correct.
