I’m considering a fast from exclamation points. I’m tired of equating them with smiley-ness, peppy-ness, and personable-ness. Have I neglected the other members of the punctuation family for the appeal of the “!” ?

Whatever happened to a simple “Thanks.” or “See you soon.” with its inherent joy? Why does just plain “Thanks.” seem so curt and stuffy? And why must I use more than one “!” when one is powerful enough?

In truth, due to overuse, my exclamation points hardly mean mean anything anymore! <— (10 pts if you knew what that “!” meant. 😉 )

One thought on “!!!!!!!

  1. As the queen of unnecessary exclamation points to convey friendliness, I feel your pain, Sheree.

    (Can you feel me dying to add an exclamation point to the end of that sentence?) =)
