I’m Making an Exclamation! Or: Dear Exclamation Point, No Quarter Given

Here Ye, Here Ye…

That sounds official, right?  Like some HUGE announcement is about to be made?  Yeah, well…I have one.  It’s more of a warning, really.  A shot across the bow, if you will.

To the exclamation point.  You know…this guy?  →  !

Yeah, that’s right.  I’m talking punctuation baby.  Actually, I’m talking TO punctuation.  And here’s my message.  You better look out.  I’m coming for you.  And it ain’t gonna be pretty.  In fact, you’re about to get abused.  Used and abused.

Fact is I’m already doing it.  You may have figured it out by now.  My Twitter account is unlocked.  I’m not hiding anything.  There’s no shame.  I’m proud of it.

You see, I’m a happy guy.  My main goal every morning is to be motivated, happy, positive.  Life is so much more enjoyable that way.  And I want to share that with others.  I want to stand on the rooftops and shout to the world.  I want to help others be happy too.

So I’m online.  Every day.  EVERY DAY.  Chatting, talking.  Socializing.  Sharing what I know, learning from others.  Laughing, thinking.  Sharing.  All positive things.  We’re making our lives better.  We’re making our lives happier.

So, Mr. Exclamation Point, you’ve been warned.  I’m going to be excited.  I’m going to be happy.  And that means you’ve got to work overtime.  No breaks.  No vacations.

Eat your Wheaties, you’re gonna need them.

But really, would you want it another way?  You are the best, the tops.  People need you.  You make their lives special.  You give power to the message.  Emotion.  You give life.

That’s why you sit above the number 1.

So think of it as an honor.  Be proud that you’ll accompany each tweet or comment or response.  Know that you are doing great work.  It won’t be easy, but try.

Be Happy!!

  1. I admit to being guilty of using and abusing poor Mr. Exclamation Point! (tee hee) I just love to use him! 🙂

    1. Nothing says happiness like a good ole exclamation point! Well, a homemade apple pie does too!! 🙂 I’m glad you enjoyed this post. As much as I use the exclamation point, I felt I should make a point of making a point. Ha ha ha ha…

  2. Love it! Very clever! I especially chuckled at the part about Mr. Exclamation Point working overtime, with no breaks, no vacations, that he was gonna need his Wheaties! Another gem from you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (did that get my point across???)

  3. LOVE IT!!!! LOL I use the exclamation point quite often. I’m a very excitable & expressive person. Like you, I love the social media & love to learn & share my life with others online & in person. Let us “bow” to the almighty EXCLAMATION POINT!!!! Well done, Sir Greg.

    1. You’ve known me long enough on Twitter to know that I’m using the heck out of the exclamation point. That guy doesn’t stand a chance…

      It is the more worn key on my keyboard. Ha ha ha…
