    I need about a dozen examples for each of those punctuation marks to properly understand them all, but I loved that list! So clever and helpful, and who knew? I like the combination ? and ! best because it’s essentially every fangirl’s dream. Fangirl typing would be so much easier with it.

    I LOVE your diligence in sharing these with us. I think we should have punctuation that resembles a backwards SarcMarc to denote when a sentence is goofy. I would probably overuse the goofy one. As more communication is written these days we need these to help us communicate clearly. Or how about a mark equivalent to “hitting the ball further into the woods.” That would come in handy.

    We also need more words for love. For example: A mere thank you seems too flat when I say it to the young person who bags my groceries in the store, and a “I love you” is just, well, creepy. This is where goofy punctuation would work best.

    I have had enough paranormal stuff happen to me in my lifetime to keep my own self up at night!

      You know, I completely agree with you! Especially since we are spending more and more time communicating online as well, where tone and expression might always not be as clear as intended (and when using emojis might not be professional). I often find the English language beautiful, but quite limiting in comparison to other languages. In many languages, for instance, there is a special form of “I love you” reserved just for friendships or for family members or for a romance. That way, no one gets confused as to where they stand.
