Michael: This is harder than I thought it was going to be.
Do you know what I’m talking about?
Melissa: Actually, I’m not sure.
Michael: I mean about, uh—
I don’t remember now.
Don’t do what you’re doing—it’s evil.
Undo what you just did.
Melissa: Okay, maybe I could just try to—okay.
Michael: Don’t do what you’re doing. Take your hands off the keyboard. That’s how you know.
Melissa: I keep accidentally hitting ctrl-option-command-N instead of ctrl-option-command-M—
Oops, it’s the other way around.
Michael: Okay, this is that part where I start feeling sorry for the reader. I mean, if you were standing around a water cooler and you were talking about, “Well, I was hitting ctrl-option-command-N instead of ctrl-option-command-M,” there’s a pretty good chance that you may be one of those people that people at the office make jokes about.
Melissa: Actually, where I work, we do get excited about things like that.
Like the other day, Greg and I were talking about typing ‘W’ to show and hide the pasteboard in InDesign.
He actually left a big note on his desk reminding us both of that fact.
Michael: You’re right. That would take me a long time to type.
And don’t put a—
Melissa: Don’t put a what?
Michael: An exclamation point!
Damn. I can’t believe I was the first one to bring it up again.
Melissa: We had been doing so well, too.
Let’s talk about another kind of punctuation. Maybe that will make the exclamation points go away.
Michael: As long as it’s not the subject of what we are writing . . . about—
Wait, never mind.
Melissa: Actually, you’re right. What is the subject of what we’re writing about?
Melissa: That was aeons ago. Can’t we have a new subject now?
Michael: Yes, let’s change it.
Melissa: What to?
Michael: Kilgore Trout!
Shouldn’t that have an exclamation point?
