What is wrong with following sentence? "Why, did you think yourself to look like Sharon Stone?"

A 'Young Lady' I was talking to today had been in an interview for a job and jokingly said she had crossed and uncrossed her legs and hadn't noticed the interviewers reacting the same way as the Cops in Basic Instinct.

It was all very tongue in cheek. (Don't ask me to elaborate further please.) Except to say, She insists that that sentence doesn't make sense.

I think it does!

You?

Your thread title was bad English, me for my!

After that I'm agreeing with your girlfriend, the sentence doesn't make sense - how can you "think yourself to look like.."??

  Kev.Ifty 22:25 13 Oct 08

The title was deliberately wrong.

I think the thread title was meant as a joke but I agree with you that the sentence is nonsense.

Sorry'last post was meant for newman35

  newman35 22:28 13 Oct 08

Move one small word in the order of the sentence and add an 'I' and it would make sense.

How would you have put it? It still makes sense to me lol

You can, however imagine yourself looking like someone, or you can imagine that you look like someone. You can even think that you look (or looked) like someone.

Fair makes your head spin!

Thank you that is the answer I am looking for. I could not quite get my head around the answer.

You have once again hit upon the head of the nail lol

Cheers Kev

Can I just point out that I am the sort of person who falls for cheap flirting.
