Eats Shoots and Leaves

No, its not a book review, just an example of how punctuation (and spaces) can make a huge difference in meaning:

To Do:
-buy pan ties

Multiple times today, I saw that as "buy panties"... which made me wonder why a purchase of undergarments was on my to-do list at work. Someone once bought a bunch of lingerie for a job, but in my case, I should have written zip ties, or cable ties, or just about anything else that wouldn't have distracted me throughout the day.

I'm telling you, McDonalds is selling M cribs!

I like both your things we do lists.

Happy Thanksgiving!
