Punctuation Freak

A project manager and I are entering data from paper surveys into a spreadsheet.

PM: “A semi-colon? On the back page of a survey?! Who does that?”

Me <half-listening>: “Sounds like something I would do.” <pause> “Wait. That might be me.”

PM <laughing>: “Seriously punctuation-happy human…ridiculous…”

Me: “No, I mean it. It might actually be me.”

PM <turning paper over>: “OMG! It is you!”

Me: “Yeah…kinda figured.”

I'm Denise. I'm a dog lover, a nature fanatic, a hiker, and a future yurt-dweller. I believe that stories lurk in all the tiny moments that make up our everyday lives. They wait, curled into themselves, until someone finds them and jailbreaks them, leading them out into the light. I have a flashlight. Follow me!
