apostrophe

struts around hot as a spark
needed for possession
needed for omission
invented by a Genini, I'm sure

sooner than you can say, " ' "
you'll be as obsolete as the point d’ironie and the asterism
make way for the interrobang
and the \m/ (whatever that is)

cry, apostrophe, your tiny tears
cry the'm all o'ver, no'body care's

hahahaaaaaa... love your takeoff, Manna, and your responses to it, Cate.

I fell in love with "struts around hot as a spark," too ~ how could anyone not?

And the image of the tiny tears with desperation to be seen, used... somewhere[!?!], so clever and downright cute.

The fortune cookies are still strewn over the table from last nights dinner party. Egg foo young is waiting in the fridge. I don’t want to open the door. I can’t stand Chinese left over’s but the guilt of throwing out perfectly good food is to overwhelming.

I’ll leave it in there for a few days.
Eat peanut butter sandwiches so that I don’t have to open the fridge. Just long enough for the foo young to be questionable, to be ‘best get rid of this – just in case’, long enough for the sin of wastefulness to be forgiven, as it really is a health concern not an unwillingness to eat clumpy rice that will lead it to the food bin. I must remember to check on it in a couple of days though, I can’t afford a new fridge and don’t want to touch anything that might be moldy.

I hope you are well.
I could mail you some leftovers if you’d like.

Every time I see someone write "to overwhelming" i imagine that person with drawn sword marching through a meadow in search of overwhelming.

the grammar nazi stopped by today she took so much from me that i am left with only letters letters to write and letters to read and use for blankets and wipe my bum with i took her picture with my motorola but the file got corrupted and all i could see in photoshop was binary gobbledygoop the grammar nazi laughed and laughed at that picture and poked me several times in the soft part of my belly which is the whole thing finally i kicked her very hard right out the front door and onto the sidewalk where she loosed a horrible scream that made the commas fall from the trees and it began to rain question marks i made as if to come and beat on her some more but she scrambled to her feet and fled down the alley dropping a few colons and semicolons from her warn out satchel these made a sound like yeep yeep when they hit the dirt and came hopping back to me along with this one period.

:shock:
a chilling story Manna!
What a faithful period you have there - brave too!

Fish ... I suspect that she did deliberately write 'warn' (I also suspect that she and the grammar Nazi are secretly 'friends' who meet by the rails after dark. It could be that she was tormenting G.N. with 'warn' hoping for a firm correction later on)

you are far too soft on Manna, she is crying out for discipline, begging for it
