My name is Joy.
I live in Maine.
I've never met an exclamation mark I didn't like.
Sometimes I host impromptu dance-offs in the middle of the street.

Joy: This woman I’m dealing with right now is being so passive agressive! And she has such a nasty tone in her emails!
Gentleman Caller: Give me an example.
Joy: Well she keeps writing “thanks” as a one-word sentence. Followed by a period. Thanks period. So nasty!
Gentleman Caller: While I realize that you feel the need to use an exclamation mark every time you even think of ending a sentence, do you think it’s possible that other people perhaps use them sparingly? And that, perhaps, the fact that they use a commonly-excepted form of punctuation to end sentences does not actually mean that they are being nasty to you?
Joy: No, she has a tone. Thanks, period. Clearly a tone.
Gentleman Caller: You’re ending this conversation with a period in your head right now, aren’t you?
Joy: Yes. Period.
