Typography Fail!

“Two spaces after finishing a sentence.”
So said the standard textbooks of my youth.
But decades on, I’m racked with deep repentance
To learn my style’s offensive and uncouth.
And now each time I write, I’m once again tense.
The habit sticks like some impacted tooth!
Perfectionist and stickler that I am,
I envy those who couldn’t give a damn!

  1. Why typographical rules must change is a mystery–notice I’m avoiding the double space I usually type after a sentence-ending period by using a dash, which is probably just as bad.

    Thanks for today’s, for your daily posts, and for the recent linking additions to your website.
