For the record, that always bothered me. Thee wouldn't say, "I were happy yesterday."

I wish the english language made more sense.

It does; the subjunctive is conditional. "I was" is definitive. "If I were happier yesterday, today wouldn't be so depressing," for example. It can even take a past compound subjunctive: "If I had been happy..."

I wish I hadn't added "and healthy" so hastily to that sentence...

Thanks for the explanation, but you still would have missed the subjunctive. And I like to tease people about the subjunctive. So don't take it seriously, Thee, the subjunctive is largely ignored in modern American English.

Isn't a subjunctive a place where they put old submarines?

I'm still wishing people wouldn't argue. Teach me the right way, then make me remember. Oh, that's a really big wish.

If you build a man a fire, you keep him warm for a day. But if you set a man on fire, you keep him warm for the rest of his life.


Keep wishing big.

Is this a wishing thread?

If so, I feel this nineties rap classic belongs here:

Quote:
I wish I was little bit taller,
I wish I was a baller,
I wish I had a girl who looked good
I would call her
I wish I had a rabbit in a hat with a bat
and a six-four impala
