My Eats, Shoots & Leaves daily grammar tidbit calendar had this lovely little quotation for yesterday. I thought I'd share:
"Like a well-trained magician's assistant, the colon pauses slightly to give you time to get a bit worried, and then efficiently whisks away the cloth and reveals the trick complete."
Come to think of it, my life has been a bit of a colon lately. A big, dramatic pause. I eagerly await the Reveal.
