I want to talk about making pauses and making lists, punctuationally speaking. Like many folks, I have yet to master the proper use of the comma. And if my comma use is bad, my use of punctuation before or between quotation marks is downright ghastly.

I apologize to those of you who have been bothered by my problems with writing mechanics. And for those of you that don’t like my using the word, “punctuationally”, get over it.
