    If you like national punctuation day, you would probably appreciate the The Great Typo Hunt. It made me want to root out all the written errors I could identify.

    So…. what’s your favorite punctuation mark?? Mine is the interobang!!! What a splendid mark indeed. 🙂

    And have you seen this?
    “Woman without her man is nothing”

    How would you punctuate it? There are two to three ways to do so! 🙂
