Sauron's greeting

Posted on TORn by TORnado 'Bumpkin' on Sunday 3rd October 2004.

"I see you!"

Bear with me, its Sunday arvo here, and I have a sore head from last night ...Last week I was watching the Oprah Show and Bill Clinton was being interviewed. He was speaking of the enormous efforts and hard work being done in Africa to get generic medications to AIDS victims. He said that one of the most impacting things he experienced whilst being there was that he had met people in a region (cant remember if he said where) who when greeted with the words "Hello" that the reply was "I see you". He thought this so profound and meaningful, he uses it now himself.

Now this might not be any big deal and I may be ignorant in not knowing any better, but the words 'I see you'is also a form of greeting in the ROTK - although not as welcoming - and JRRT being born in SAfrica - I thought that this maybe a common greeting reply.

Are there any other cultures that use this expression on a meet and greet?

Any thoughts on this?

No loud ones please .... my head y'know.

It's pretty common in many parts of Africa

and it basically is a form of respectful acknowledgement.
