observations and nitpicks

Published August 29, 2011 by veryjaneeyre

Logan Henderson likes to point.

Just look:

Pointing.... Logan's 2nd from the left in the back row.

Pointing...x 2. Why is Kendall pointing too?

Pointing...with James. Is Logan's penchant for pointing rubbing off?

What's this? He's pointing!

It’s become so commonplace to me that I almost don’t recognize Logan if he’s not pointing. Adorable boy.

Now, on to the nitpick that’s been driving me up a wall for the last few days.

I get that not everyone is as conscientious about spelling and grammar as I am, but there is absolutely no excuse to be stupid about punctuation. Blue gets lazy with it sometimes and it takes me a few seconds to figure out what he’s trying to tell me, but this latest thing has nothing to do with him.

I was reading a story the other day where the narrative had whole paragraphs of sentences ending in exclamation points. To me, that’s the eyesight equivalent of nails on a chalkboard. I can’t take you or your work seriously if it all I hear is a high-pitched sentence ending in my head, over and over.

This is how I feel When! I! See! This!

So please don’t do it. Or I’ll find Logan Henderson and ask/plead with/command him to point at YOU while you wear a sign that says, “I! LOVE!! exclamation! points!!!!!!!!”
