What punctuation mark would you be and why?

I would be a question mark. I usually want to know more about people or why people do what they do.

What is your grammatical pet peeve?

Adding a space before a period or comma.

What is your favorite way to spend a Sunday afternoon?

If it is raining, binge-watching my favorite shows with a good cup of coffee. If it is sunny, I love to be out visiting friends and family.
