"We are like the little boy in The Sixth Sense who can see dead people, except that we can see dead punctuation.  Whisper it in petrified little-boy tones:  dead punctuation is invisible to everyone else- yet we see it all the time.  No one understands us seventh-sense people." (Truss 3-4)

 

its weird to think that someone could actually put a name to people who are grammar nazies.  but most people who write any more are if you think about it.  you either put so much punctuation in that its ridiculous or you don't put enough and then it sounds bland.  but to actually say that its a seventh-sense makes it seem like we're all freaks.  but if you are a fictional writer or even not, aren't we all freaks because of the things we think of to write about?  so it does fit!!
