Oh, Punctuation Princess!
Missed Connections in Ithaca
I am sure you’re not a snob.
I know I’m not.
I fear you actually can imagine what a disappointment
these men would be.
Thank you for speaking up,
for still having hope,
and for knowing how to use the language.
Best of luck finding your Missed Connection.
If you’re an avid peruse-r of missed connections, you know the writing and communication “style” of many posters can be downright cringe-worthy. Incorrect spelling, bad grammar, and runaway-train sentence structure can leave a reader feeling like they’ve stumbled upon an encrypted message! However, there are some significant differences between the writer with a faulty grasp of English and one who is playing with the rules for their own enjoyment and creative expression. Lack of punctuation isn’t always a deal-breaker.
