MiddleFingerMom is feeling giddy as a little schoolgirl!!!!

On cursory examination, a pretty helpful grammar site by tblue37:

(See the "Article Index".)
.

I'm pretty goodly about grammar, but I can always use help on the finer points.

The reason for my giddiness?
.
.
.
From her "Are those dots just for decoration?":
.
"Whatever else you do, though, don't use ellipsis points as if they
were decorations for your prose. Writing of that sort reminds me of
preteen girls who dot their "i's" with circles and hearts. It has a
silly, breathless quality to it, don't you think?"

Ah SWAN... Ah DO believe I have the vapors!!!!
