What kind of punctuation mark are you?

Okay, it's all Susan's fault. I couldn't bear knowing she was a comma without knowing what I was! It turns out, I'm a semicolon. (And as an editor, I quibble with the unnecessary hyphen in the word "semicolon" below.) Now I bet you want to find out what you are.

You Are a Semi-Colon

You are elegant, understated, and subtle in your communication.

You're very smart (and you know it), but you don't often showcase your brilliance.

Instead, you carefully construct your arguments, ideas, and theories until they are bulletproof.

You see your words as an expression of yourself, and you are careful not to waste them.

You friends see you as enlightened, logical, and shrewd.

(But what you're saying often goes right over their heads.)

You excel in: The Arts

You get along best with: The Colon

Yes, I totally quibble with that hyphen as well!

I *love* semicolons.
