I like y because it is so universal and people can be fooled into thinking that this can't be used as a vowel. You are sooo clever.

Not Only that but I also love E!

I is afterall, roman numeral one.

I is for an Eye too.

I is Me.

I love You.

Actually, I find the consonants to be much more sexy, with their friccatives and glottal stops. The vowels can sometimes be much too heavy on the dipthongs, if you're a Southerner, know what I mean, cyclby?.

Stella,
I try to stay north of the Mason-Dixon but I do have a western U.S. accent so I get alot of laughs from Canadians.
