[tps_title]11. I thought to myself.[/tps_title]
Thought – The action of thinking
This is a classic example of saying too much. Unless you’ve been thinking for other people, then you need to drop the ‘myself’ out of the phrase. This is also like saying ‘I, personally.” We got you when you used the word ‘I,’ so there’s no need to follow the word with ‘personally.’ It’s a waste of time and saliva.
