The Geek Inside

Today I took myself out for a coffee after church and sat reading The Body Remembers, the book I mentioned in a previous post. It's a book written for therapists and it's rather technical and detailed in parts so I was concentrating quite hard whilst reading it. Here's how my thoughts ran today:

"Hmmm... well that's interesting... yes, I can see that.... gosh, I hadn't realised that before... oh dear, I don't think I would have used a semi-colon there... yes, this part definitely relates to me..."

That's right. In the middle of reading something that's helping me to learn what's going on in the deepest parts of me I still managed to notice a questionable semi-colon.

Yep. Not sure whether to laugh or cry now...

Questionable semicolon? You should certainly laugh at that! ;)

I so love that despite being engrossed you can still spy the questionable editing.

And I'm not certain that I should comment on your blog anymore: I may punctuate incorrectly and you'll entirely miss the point of what I was trying to say.

It's okay, I can multi-task. I would still get the point. :)

My punctuation and grammar is often questionable on my blog, but I try not to make it TOO atrocious.

Well, punctuation is very important! I have to use it obsessively perfectly when I SMS, even.
