Wow, this thread really took off huh? Ok well, let me start off by saying that my English teacher has spoken with me about my punctuation and capitalization as well. (Mostly on my rough drafts) I type very fast; I also have the habit of speaking out loud what I want to put to paper. Unfortunately, this ends up in my written word being poorly punctuated and not capitalized and sounding as though I were speaking with a friend.
For school papers I always go back through what I have written and edit for these errors. I guess I didn’t realize that it would be such a sore point for an internet forum. I apologize and will endeavor to use proper capitalization and punctuation in the future.
Now; as for the situation with Bree, we went to grab something to eat after school but before practice. I sat with her and I told her that I was excited to have been made captain for next year and how I wasn’t sure I would be appointed, especially as her back tuck is much stronger than mine. I then told her that, as the two people who were in the running to be captain, I would be honored if she would consider being my co-captain. I never once let on that I knew what she had said. So I guess, ultimately, I took my mother’s advice, with a little thrown in from here.
Bree was very excited about the co-captain offer, and accepted. I think at this point I will have to agree that Bree was just really upset and spoke in the heat of the moment.
Thank you to those of you who provided me with advice, I greatly appreciate it.
As for my age, I didn’t think that this was an adult exclusive board. I will take great pains to correct my typing for legibility but I am unable to do anything about my age.
