Ruth’s back at the castle – hanging out and being my support worker. She’s got a new tic and it’s really making me laugh. It’s very specific to Ruth and she says it in a very specific voice. It’s about her older sister, Joy.
“Joy, you’re not a person, you’re an adjective.”
Even writing it down here makes me giggle. I’m particularly impressed that her Tourettes claims to have such a good understanding of grammar – I had to search online to check if her tic was correct.
Joy is of course a lovely person, and therefore a noun.
