We were sitting in the RV, waiting for the photo crew to set up the next shot. I was using the WiFi to check email and transcribe a story from my notebook to The Chronicles. (I know, it's weird that I actually use a notebook. But I am getting old and my laptop is too damn heavy to carry around. Plus a notebook looks more writer-y.) This is the conversation that took place. (Cam and Julie are two women that I work with.)
Me: Where does the punctuation go for a parenthesis?
Julie: It depends. If it's a complete sentence it goes on the inside, if it's not it goes on the outside.
Julie: Let me just see what you're writing.
Cam: He won't let anyone see because he's writing the next edition of The Franklin Chronicles.
Julie: Then I'm commenting about your punctuation in your next post.
