I stayed to try banging out much newer, much slightlier less slightly crappy writing that I'll hide from the world at large like some type of writer-in-denial, notebook-packing closet case? Like some type of beefy, hunked up, well-oiled, water-just-beads-up-and-slips-right-off, writer-in-denial, notebook-packing closet case?

If I put a question mark at the end of everything, does the little voice in your head that you attribute to me get slightly higher and higher pitched?


I do like linguini pasta?

Am I weirding you out, yet?

I find the question mark issue so disturbing that when I use the phrase "who knows" I end it with a period.

I also once read dialogue where the question marks were used "inappropriately" when a character was acting purposely ditzy. It worked perfectly.

Just pretend you work at Starbucks?

If only I could compulsively 'like' the responses, like on Facebook, and then I wouldn't have to form a coherent response.


@em: I'll try harder.

@gail: Hi, Gail!

@thuggish: I have a new favorite way of punctuating ditziness. Thank you!

@austin: At this point, I'll take all the support I can get! Gratuitous thank-yous for upvotes.

To me it makes you sound like a confused Barry White.
