You’re Not a Person You’re an Adjective

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.
