Ellipsis Queen: Daily Post

bubbles1

We all have strange relationships with punctuation — do you overuse exclamation marks? Do you avoid semicolons like the plague? What type of punctuation could you never live without? Tell us all about your punctuation quirks!

According to Wikipedia, ellispsis is derived from the Gre: ἔλλειψις, élleipsis, “omission” or “falling short.”

Lately, I have noticed that I use ellipsis . . . all of the time. It adds a dramatic pause. The ellipsis has all of the drama that is necessary. It’s not too much for me to handle. It says so much without saying anything.
So I can say things like “No one has seen that skinny hippie since she called me fat . . . ” It makes you wonder what happened to her doesn’t it?

P.S. Do not assume that a woman is pregnant. She might just be fat . . . and struggling to lose weight. Just sayin’. . .

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes.

  1. Yep, I’m with you Holley. I’m an avid ellipsis user as well as semi-colons (love, love and more love), exclamation marks and anything else that gets my ‘voice’ across.
