The over-use of !!!!!!!


It is no hidden secret that my grammar skills leave little to be desired. There is really only one thing that drives me crazy, and that is the over use of exclamation! points! It sounds as though you are yelling everything you say with tremendous excitement!

Dear Friend!

The other day I was reading your blog! I loved your post! It was so tremendously entertaining! (ok. I probably would put one there). However, your exclamations make reading your writing a little exhausting! How can one person stand that much excitement? Your words that are so beautifully written, so eloquently descriptive, are tarnished by the constant !!! at the end of your sentences! Believe me! We understand your enthusiasm just from your well put-together phrases, and your sense of humor shines! There is no need for all of that exclaiming!!! Not that I don't love you just the way you are! Feel free to tell me to go *$#* myself! I'm not a critic! Just someone who gets distracted easily!

Love and Hugs!
Jewels!

Have a great weekend.

Sorry Woman - I should've put a warning at the top.

"Caution, reading this post may cause extreme dissapointment and feelings of disbelief!

Oh, I feel so guilty!!!!!!! I do it too! And everytime I type one, I actually think: could I do without one? I will have to be even stricter from now on. So sorry to have annoyed you with them ;-)
