Our Generation’s Favorite Punctuation…

Have you noticed our generation’s love of the ellipsis?  Go check your facebook and see how many of the status’ sport it. I’m an admitted abuser of this piece of punctuation

There’s something so freeing about the lack of finality…

The elongation of a thought…

Three dots that sport so much mystery…

Flirtatious…

Coy…

Undecided…

Passive-aggressive…

Uneasy…

Pensive…

Thoughtful…

Annoyed…

Anxious…

Until next time…

  1. My favorite entry so far. It’s perfect.

  2. -Random Hook-ups and Protocol afterwards (I may ask for a guest author there).

    I’m happy to ghostwrite, if ya need.(..)

  3. Unbelievable how technology has changed the way that we communicate… turned us all in to Larry King-like writers… at least some of us still focus on spelling and grammar… even when typing with our thumbs… Strunk and White would be proud.

  4. A 6 minute YouTube video is typically way too long for me to watch, but I was drawn in by the truth in that satire. That and the fact that the main character bears your name…
    Thanks for the tip. Several topics in there to discuss:
    -Screening calls and the overpowering use of the text to the phone call.
    -Random Hook-ups and Protocol afterwards (I may ask for a guest author there).
    -Drinking away discomfort.
    -Decoding text messages.

  5. nice…also go to YouTube and search for Texting Your Way to Love…you will find both something about ellipsis and maybe another topic for the blog. (ps the entry is on its way, give me a few days!)
