I have read the few questions about punctuations in parenthesis, but I think none of them answers my question. I've looked at:
- Where does the question mark go — inside or outside the parentheses?
- In which cases is a comma/period placed inside or outside of parentheses?
- Continuing a sentence in a parenthesis and then starting a new one inside the same
If I have the following sentence structure (modified from one of the earlier question), is the following punctuation correct? Should I put the period within the parenthesis since it is a full sentence, or don't put it because it is still going on with the main sentence?
This morning I was distracted by a plane (or was it Superman? I'm not very sure.), so I tripped.
