If you’re exactly like me (and let’s hope to god that you’re not, because I hate cloning), you might enjoy reading some love letters to various punctuation marks, coming to us courtesy of the blog Emdashes.

Here's a sample:

Dear Exclamation point!

Mel Gibson has lately placed you in the forefront of the news. Too many times you have been used and abused by expletives. I don’t think you would have chosen to be at the end of Mr. Gibson’s sentences. His angry ranting sentences acted like they were entitled to have you at the end of every one of them! Why can’t his raging phrases calm down and give you a rest? I’m wishing a change for you; one that’s peaceful and calm. May you follow this word instead. Serenity!

Gently,
Darcy

(Thanks, Columbia Journalism Review.)
