Pedantic Man

By Archibald Hobbs

It came as a surprise to Nigel Cravenly that he possessed a superpower.

Nigel was already middle-aged when Sarah Whittens said that she loved three things: eating, her pretty poetry and her adorable Corgi.

Though she said these words out loud, Nigel just knew that Sarah had not deployed any punctuation in her statement.

So, applying tracked changes to the verbal conversation, Nigel enquired what grape variety Sarah enjoyed with her precious verse and her precocious puppy. Sarah retorted that Nigel should shove his commas next to his colon.

Having discovered his superpower, Nigel wished he had a better one.
