i write good and funny sentences: dropping facebook bombs

Nothing gets my juices boiling like a well-placed comma, dash, or semicolon (or lack thereof).

In short, I LOVE a good sentence.  The beauty of the online world is that there’s gold in them texts, emails, comments and posts.  Check out the excerpts below from my various online wanderings.  Some are funny, some are stupid, some are deep, some are shallow, and all are sentences (despite the fact that they don’t always have periods)…READ MORE

little sentence victories

You’ve got to savor the little victories, because the big ones are rare and defeat is common.  Some sentences are just more satisfying than others.  Sentence nerds, you know where I’m at.  It’s that witty sentence, known to none but yourself, tucked away in a school paper or work email.  These are the ones that get us through the day…READ MORE
