Grammar Queen

Today is my birthday.

And in typical adult/kid fashion, I wanted to know what else I share this important day with. My husband was born on the day they fired on Ft. Sumter in history. OK, it’s not real positive, but it is weighty. I already knew Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas were born on this day, but not being a big Hollywood fan, this didn’t impress me.

So I fired up Google and here’s what I discovered: It’s National Punctuation Day. Get outta here – that is definitely a cosmic joke on the gal who spent 20+ years in journalism. Now I have to share my birthday honoring commas, parentheses, and colons?

Blech, and you can quote me on that. Period.
