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).



I am a rather obscure 14th C. poet, whose work has been translated into over thirty dialects of gibberish. I now spend my days translating from the gibberish into English and back again, as need be.

  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.
