    I am, without a doubt, an exclamation point. Yes, it is somewhat trite to pick this particular punctuation mark; however, it describes me way too perfectly to refute it. According to my family, I do everything with flair. Some might say that I am a drama queen. Well, actually, a lot of people will say that I am a drama queen. But, I do not like labels. Or, at least, that is what I like to tell them. :)

    An example of my dramatic antics: Recently, I stubbed my toe. Instead of a normal yelp, I screamed bloody murder. My husband walks up to me, and he says, “Wow, honey, you really do everything dramatically.” I did not agree; however, after an in-depth discussion, I think he might be on to something. I will not tell him that, though. *evil grin* Boy, it is so much fun to be ornery.

    So, I am definitely going with the :!:

    I hope you have a wonderful time in Memphis. I never really thought about which punctuation mark would best describe me. I think right now it would be the question mark since my life is in such a mess at this moment.

    i am not sure wich one would describe me but probably the question mark is best because i tend to leave most people with questions or guessing what the hell i am about.

    Okay, not big on punctuation. I know, normally when this ( ; ) appears, it’s usually to explain something a little. That’s me, I can’t just say what I did anyday of the week without the backstory! lol

    I think in !. I write in !. I am almost always at energy level !. So I have to go with !. You’ve met me when I was nervous so I was subdued. Yep, subdued. I was only an * or () but only a little !.
    Have a fab trip. Do you ever sit still? I love your cowboy. Very nice.

    Wonderful descriptions y’all! Well for me…I’ll be a an ellipsis. Aside from the fact that I often use the mark myself. :lol: LOL…Ellipsis are like sentence enhancers, enhancers…they could be seen in the middle to depict length, or somewhere by the end to let the reader explore more context! When a story ends with an ellipsis, the reader is tasked to imagine and expound more…as a person I’m a real travel-holic though I’m still bound at home. And I dream to be free…to break boundaries, exceed expectations of my parents and let the world know there is still more to me than meets the eye…or what they’ve known of me so far! :oops:
    LOL…so much touchy-feely but that’s me!
