dear person I hope to marry:
Once I know your name, I will use a comma after I address you. Commas are much more personal than colons. However, you should know that once I meet you, I never want to change a light bulb again. I hate light bulbs and another one has gone out.
Also, please always pump the gas in my car. it is dirty and i do not like touching the handle.
I hope you like very organized closets and drawers, because that is my specialty. I am also good at dusting.
