In a fast paced world filled with shorthand text messages and autocorrect on every single smart device, it's pretty easy for all of us to forget how important proper punctuation can be. Especially when we really need to use it, for things that matter. So when Lewiston High School posted a sign outside their library about how one single comma can make all the difference, people laughed...and they also took notice.

Shared on Twitter by Lewiston Adult Ed, the power of the comma has never been more evident than in the battle of life or death for Timmy. One comma is the difference between Timmy having a delicious meal and Timmy being the delicious meal.

It's a funny little snapshot of how we all should slow down from time to time and remember that grammar and punctuation do matter. Oh, and we also hope Timmy is ok.
