In which having German as a first language helps Amy speak prescriptively correct English

Amy and I were just playing with Playmobil figures and I sat one of them at a table with a tin of sausages. I had him ask, "Who wants to eat sausages with me?"

And Amy holds another figure up and says, "I!"

That amused me so much that I had to write a journal entry about it.

(I think your average native English speaker would be more likely to have said, "Me!".)
