Monday’s almost over and I forgot to post!  Can you tell what kind of day it’s been?

From the desk of Strunk & White, I give you the uses of the comma:

  1. In a list (except for the last item): cats, dogs, kangaroos, and donkeys.
  2. To enclose parenthetic statements: I met my teacher, Mrs. Dullan, at the beach yesterday.
  3. Before a conjunction (if, and, or, but) that introduces an independent clause (a statement that could almost stand on its own as a sentence): I hear what you’re saying, but the 80s still had the best music.
