(Kat and Lux--this is my parentheses blog. To others, namely you, Lux thought it would be neat to have a writing group. This is one of our topics. Hope you enjoy!)
I think the use of parentheses was ruined for me when in Math, we started using them for complicated math problems.
My hair (straight, brown) might have a dead mosquito in it since I've been swatting my hair and hitting my head a lot (thinking that it's trying to suck my brain's blood).
In conclusion, in text, parentheses rock!
