Send in the commas

by Mar 5, 20020 comments

It has been brought to my attention, by me actually, that I really like commas. Perhaps I like them a little too much. I haven’t really written prose, or much of anything for that matter since escaping High School so I haven’t had a chance to notice it, but since starting this site and having to write on a regular basis, I’ve noticed that they keep popping up EVERYWHERE.

Seriously, I’ll be proofreading an update before posting it (yes, I do actually proofread these things) and will constantly find myself saying, “Why the hell did I put a comma here!?!” I manage to catch most of them before they reach the iTools server, but when I think about the sheer number of innocent commas that I’ve sent to their untimely demise for the faithful readership of Hair Flap, I often take a minute or two to weep a silent prayer to the comma-gods (Little Known Fact: ‘comma-gods’ is really fun to say! Comma-gods, comma-gods!).

In any case, I’m not sure if I’m just being paranoid or if there really is a problem that needs to be addressed. So I figured why bother to sit down and sort it out myself when I can put all of you to work for me to do same. With that said, let’s roll in another Hair Flap first, our inaugural Reader Poll. That’s right, now you too can offer your input on things that are…well, stupid. But at least they’re in your control!! So click an option, submit the vote and watch your democracy go to work FOR YOU!!!
