    Hey umajean,
    I guess you can't playfully tease strangers in sterile inflection-less e-writing. My bad. I should have stressed the "I'm totally goofin" part more. I was serious about that. I was just ribbin ya some in the not-mean FFF fashion. I'm pro-art & art teachers, and you are absolved of having to ever cross the grammar nexus. Best wishes, for real.

    Yours in rock,

    p.s.
    As a token of goodwill (to all eyes), here's a freebie Mr. Kotter taught me: The proper expression is "I couldn't care less." If you "could care less," you're saying "it ain't so bad." :)

    Shazam, the "ellipsis" is the fabulous 3 dots that appear like this: "..."

    If you'd like to comment on the dots in between syllables, here you go:

    And I don't teach grammar, I teach art.

    Do you mean the tooth filling-loosening crappy sorta-candy "DOTS" or grammar's "ellipsis"? I'm totally goofin. I was just charmed that an edutainer would use the word "dots." But gadzooks, for real, you have the best T.G.I.F. ever (which ironically can not actually be had at a McT.G.I.Friday's... if they're still in business? Wait, thinking of Bennigans! How could I forget? Damn yo, let's pour out some Zima for our dead homies). Cheers!
