(shocking)(realisation)

I just realised that I use parentheses way too often (seriously). I just wrote an e-mail (well, I'm in the middle of writing it), and there were three short paragraphs, in which I used parentheses FIVE (5) times.

I didn't use up just my share of parentheses; I used all my neighbours (within a five-mile radius) parentheses, too. I'm half expecting them to come knocking on my door (with torches and pitchforks).


I meant parentheses. Not ellipses. I used to be an ellipsoholic, but I've been sober for 21 days now.

I realize that I have a problem... with ellipses... but I just can't help using these three little dots...
