Most people who misuse punctuation marks these days choose to abuse apostrophes. You may have noticed the alarming explosion of misplaced apostrophes currently plaguing all forms writing.
Personally, I prefer to err on the side of commas. I think it’s because commas help me to slow down, give pause, consider: not a full stop, not an exclamation, just a pause for breath. That’s what a comma can do. However I am going to make an effort to use them more judiciously in future and I just removed one from this sentence.
Well begun is half done. Now about those parentheticals…
Hilarious. Guilty as charged!
To what crime are you admitting guilt, excessive comma use, or parenthetical asides? (Just curious)
