If I want to really convey a characters shock of something. Say for example they are expecting a blind date to be short, and instead a woman with nice long legs shows up. I'd like to have their reaction be emphasized by the way the words sit on the page. Such as: And those legs... just kept on going. Get it? Anyway, my real question is how do I punctuate this? Should there be '...' before or after each word? Should there be nothing? I know this is unconventional, but I've never been one for conventional writing. I'm the type of person that prefers: "Annnnnnnd?" to "And?" the waitress drawled.
