Punctuation Pauses

Please share these with family or friends or anyone you know who hasn’t realized the value of punctuation….

Getting the Punctuation Right
An English professor wrote the words, “Woman without her man is nothing,” on the blackboard and directed the students to punctuate it correctly.

The men wrote: “Woman, without her man, is nothing.”
The women wrote: “Woman! Without her, man is nothing.”

The Words are the same. Only the punctuation changes

Dear Thomas,

I want a man who knows what love is all about. You are
generous, kind, thoughtful. People who are not like you
admit to being useless and inferior. You have ruined me
for other men. I yearn for you. I have no feelings
whatsoever when we’re apart. I can be forever happy. Will
you let me be yours?

Dear Thomas,

I want a man who knows what love is. All about you are
generous, kind, thoughtful people, who are not like you.
Admit to being useless and inferior. You have ruined me.
For other men, I yearn. For you, I have no feelings
whatsoever. When we’re apart, I can be forever happy.
Will you let me be?
Yours,

Maria
