What's your favorite punctuation mark?

Could it be ! or ; or :) or ?
...wait... one of those doesn't seem right...

I thought it would be interesting to find out if other people had a favorite punctuation mark... like me...

As illustrated above - in excess - is my 'punctuation mark of choice,' the ellipsis; also known as dot-dot-dot. I use it more for effect than its intended grammatical use, an omission of text. I like to include the ellipsis in my poems and short stories because it adds to the flow. It allows me to transition from one stanza or paragraph to the next, or to change the scene completely.
