The Oxford Comma

Hello Friends,

Subsequent to a heated debate that took place a few days ago, I present to you, without further ado..... the Oxford Comma. Please read about this, become enlightened, and use it appropriately for the rest of your life.

Silly tabby,

a) it wasn't a heated debate. moreover, a mere exchange of two intellectually starved minds in search of meaning on a friday afternoon post exam.

and, b) i still don't like the comma.

Dear Anonymous,

If you don't like the comma, maybe you'd prefer a coma? That's what you're gonna get if you don't lay off the Oxford. He's got some well-connected friends.

Ah, yes. The comma. I adore it and use it often to create cadence in my writings.

I don't expect others to like it, just as I've come not to expect others to understand the difference between 'it's' and 'its', or 'they're', 'their', and 'there'. I feel, at times, like a lost prophet, propagating an ideal that is all but extinct.

Thank you for posting this link. It makes me happy to see that some people still care about grammar.

Dear Nick,

I share your disdain for grammar gafs. That said, I've been known to commit the occasional literary crime, particularly when updating this blog during a call shift at the hosptial.

You know what they say..let he who is without sin...

On a separate note, it's good to hear from you. Have you talked to Pesto?

I made a typo in the above comment that I will choose not to correct. I will wear it like a badge of fatigue and dishonour...

Why do all babies want to be born after midnight?

Babie like to come after midnight to upset the medical practitioners that are there to deal with them.
