Most questions aren’t even questions. They are statements in disguise with a funny little squiggle and a dot at the end. People who hide behind question marks and then adding a “just asking” statement as they are asked to clarify themselves are an interesting bunch. I wrote about it. But that wasn’t enough. It still bothers me.
Although a question mark is powerful. Take “Dinner tonight” or “Dinner tonight?” The first one creates a tiny bit of panic inside me. The second one brings me joy.
