write a letter to a punctuation mark

Emily runs a blog called em-dashes and suggested readers of this blog might be interested in a contest asking you to write a letter to your favorite punctuation mark. I obviously owe quotation marks quite a bit, but have some affection for the semicolon as well (and, come to think of it, the em-dash). I'm busy writing other things right now, as my many open word docs demonstrate, but I thought some of y'all might have fun with it.

I can't stand the em-dash. It's so bulky and ugly. I'm a semicolon guy myself.

... are ellipses a "punctuation mark" ...I "sometimes" overuse them ... I just like them a lot ...
