Happy National Punctuation Day!

September 24 is National Punctuation Day. Can we expect comma drama? Apostrophe catastrophes? Other exclamations? What’s the point? I recall the good old days, when my seventh grade math teacher said to my classmate, “Question, Marc?” A direct quote. The other day I passed a race–the em dash. I paused to watch and to put balm on my lips. Or were they my ellipses…? Happy National Punctuation Day! (My period is due any day now).

  1. Hilarious! Hurrah for your observance of the holiday! Yes, quote me: direct quote marks or a convoluted quote within a quote for indirect quote marks. No baffled questions, no unfilled ellipses, no stuttering dashes. Where’s my semicolon? Let me not ramble on; let me end with an emphatic period.
