…here are my awards for winning the school spelling bee in both 6th and 7th grade. Don’t get excited; I lost in regionals both times. In 6th grade I lost on “irrigation” (spelled it “irrAgation”) and in 7th grade I lost on “rhinoceros” (spelled it “rhinoceroUs”). Hey, I was just a little kid!
The sad part is not that I won twice; it’s that I’ve kept these ridiculous awards for so long, though I have blocked out the years so you don’t know just HOW long…
I came in second in the only spelling bee I was ever in – 8th grade, and the word I missed was “exaggerate”. I spelled it with one “g”. I still check the spelling every time now.
Whaaat??? You saved something??? Isn’t that against all that you believe in?? But do you STILL have them….
