Happy and punctuation are two words I rarely see used together. But since this is a day to celebrate grammar, who am I to argue? And, yes, there’s even a website—and punctuation meatloaf.
Today we honor those symbols, those curves and dots, those sentries of proper understanding. Today we salute the marks that make our sentences possible.
Or, conversely, today we wonder why some of these rules even exist.
Whatever the case may be, I hope you will leave a comment to tell about your favorite—or least favorite—punctuation mark. What makes it special? How has it tripped you up?
For me, I’ve always been a fan of the interrobang—and thereby hangs a tale. Right‽
