If I have two character flaws, they would be multislacking (see my previous blog for a definition), and a deep, abiding, unabated, and profound love of the comma. For those of you who care, I am a believer in the Oxford comma, too. Out of the fourteen punctuation marks in the English language, the comma is my favorite. I dearly treasure that little pause. We rush through our reading and writing all too quickly. Can there be too much of a simple rest? Say it is not so!
I know I’m prone to overusing the little guy. My editors have told me so. But who gives them the right to be the comma police? Ha! Let’s strike a blow for comma independence.
And now, a little comma levity to entertain you.
