just add a Fucking asterisk!

This is a brief whine about the endless fucking asteriskes that populate every form that I come across. You know the ones, they’re next to something important, something that needs clarity and they signal something. But then you scroll down and look for a little explanatory note but no, there’s none. Just the little stars fluttering like grazing butterflies all over the page. What to make of all these asterisks? *

 

*I just don’t know

One Response to just add a Fucking asterisk!

  1. I’m reading He Knew He Was Right, in the OUP World’s Classics edition. Every cultural reference gets an asterisk, leading to the notes at the back of the 900-page book. It doesn’t encourage me to find them: I either guess or postpone enlightenment until I finish the novel and get to the notes. Infuriating.
