Jason wants to go to camp, Jenni. We can’t afford it. I hate to hurt him, though.

Jenni handed a flyer to John. “It’ll be okay. We can sign him up for CAMP!

The Trifextra challenge this week was to use an exclamation point correctly. I haven’t yet read the other entries, but I am sure there are a lot of properly used !!!!s. I like to be a bit different . . . a bit off the mark . . . and was interested to find the Camp Exclamation Point website. Perhaps not quite what our editors were seeking, but there you have it.

A word about the names: I have had several friends over the years who have named their children using the same intials as theirs. It can be annoying or endearing.

Camp Exclamation Point is a legitimate camp – the above logo is from their website. If you’d like to be a part of it, check out their website.

    nice blog. We have lots of moose here on the island, so I can relate to this site. I will have a look around if you don’t mind!

    I had friends in high school – Julie and John. They got married and had three kids, all with names starting with J. Julie’s mom and siblings – all Js. John and his family – all Js. It was annoying.

    Who loved it more? I’ve been on both sides now and I think it’s about a tie.

    Neat way to address this prompt. I really loved the element of surprise.

  5. well of course I had to go look! Did you already know about this or go hunting it up for the blog entry? In any case, clever!

  6. Clever! :-) There’s just no escaping that ‘!’ .

    I can one-up your Jenni and John. I had a friend Bill who married Jill. They then gave birth to Jen. And Ben. Rhyming AND same first initial. Ugh. :-) This was a cute response. Thanks for participating and giving us something different.
