to stop by for a visit

and sit for a moment.

September 24th: National Punctuation Day

* “A celebration of the lowly comma, correctly used quotation marks,

and other proper uses of periods, semicolons, and the ever-mysterious ellipsis.”

National Punctuation Day gives you the opportunity

to dress up your sentences with all kinds of context and accentuation!

Or, take the day to remind yourself what a semicolon actually does.

 

‘i’m tired of wasting letters when punctuation will do, period.’

-steve martin

 

*(i may not be qualified to celebrate this holiday,

as i endlessly abuse this system of grammatical organization.)
