Never got to see the last few posts in this thread, as it fell victim to the "mark forums read(!!)" button that is too close under the "What's New?" that happened several times from my tiny tablet where it's too easy to accidentally touch the "mark" button in lieu of the "New" button!Originally Posted by Shea Z
So, anyway, aside from what you pointed out, Shea, "both" could possibly be replaced by "each," since the first "you" in that sentence is addressed to Peggy, while you used Marsha's name to address her. Their being singular entities, they were suddenly lumped together ~~ tho' addressed separately/singularly ~~ as a combined plural by using "both." Seems we recall some vague reference to "each" being used to refer equally to each separately noted (as opposed to having been lumped together in the subject as "you guys," or "you two").
Just having fun ... I might be as prone to use "both" there rather than "each," too.
