Evidence that Fran thinks the colon is like a baby seal

Watch me defending the colon.  Poetic pedantry in bodily form.

Yes, I'd like to know why Fran thinks the colon is like a baby seal

  1. I thought it was going to be about the lower intestine. I stand corrected. ;-)

  3. I was afraid this would be about a colonoscopy. I love the colon and the semicolon, and I promise to use them correctly at all times.

    Love,

  4. I have no idea how to use a colon, or semi colon. I am sure I was taught how at my late 50's/early 60's girls' grammar school, but never used the knowledge for many years ( why would you..? ) and now I am commenting on blogs and writing emails I am sure I should using them instead of a line of dots..........see ! Teach me !

    1. For commenting on blogs or writing emails, you can get on very well without them! Carry on doing what you're doing, and if you get asked to write a formal letter to the Queen, ask me again to teach you!

  6. Brilliant! Yes, of course I use colons and semi colons. They make me look like a proper writer: (or is it;?) I hope!
