He just texted me now and I'm once again confronted with my neglectful parenting. He wished me happy Father's Day and says we will talk later. He used three exclamation points in that text!

I love the kid but I need to sit down with him and have the talk. Not the sex talk. He'll figure that all just like I did in my forties. I just need him to learn responsible use of exclamation points.

this a long time ago and it seems relevant to your discussion. Maybe use it as a visual reference.

are the perfect time to sit down and have the "talk" By that age I found my own kids ready for the "talk." They were very verbal, could explain things and were not embarrassed that they had to define so many things to me.
Agender
Androsexual, androphilic
Aromantic
Cissexual
Gender variant
Pan sexual
PGPs

The other "talk" why bother with punctuation when you can just use emoji?

I LOVE exclamation points!!!! AND targeted, strategies use of capitalization!!

And I've seen you use multiple exclamation points, too!!!!!!! But I'm not going to look for examples right now. I'm too busy writing a report right now. Can you tell???
