    I can't speak for others, but personally it's because I have a mouse in my pocket.

    If one is Her Majesty the Queen, one might use "one" instead of the "we"which her illustrious predecessor preferred.
    Of course, we have no direct knowledge of that, so one may be making an incorrect assumption.
    We wouldn't want that, would we?

    Maybe they are referring to themselves and their " first personal " . Just roll with it and maybe self medicate and it will be OK . My imaginary friend thinks some of you guys are weird . We are going to go back to watching NHRA qualifying because we like it . seven three !
