shalom Uri,

Thank you, stylistic comments are always appreciated.
Yes, qor'im li is how I would normally talk and she would talk, and is
certainly good BH in many contexts.

I choose "oti" as a kind of tiqqun yeter to avoid accusations of
post-biblical or modern Hebrew. I remembered such occurring in the MT,
and checking now I find Genesis 27.1 and 41.8 and stop there:
‏ ויקרא את־עשו ... ויאמר אליו֙
. . .
‏ויקרא את כל חרטמי מצרים
