Weekend chuckle: best o' spelling bee

(Semi-warning: a kid honestly mistakes one word for a crudity... I don't think it'll ruin anyone's sanctification.)

The kid with "numnah" won that year (08). It's a greats clip, worth a youtube search.

That's awesome.

I missed being the Southwest regional spelling bee champion because I misspelled "alcohol." (Thank you, beloved Baptist parents. :) )

So since my daughters could read, I've been subtly grooming them for spelling bee greatness to forever erase the memory of my tragic failure. A little Latin and Romance language lecturing here, another watching of Akeelah and the Bee there... one of them is going to make me proud. :)

That's why Spellbound was such a great documentary.

I take it a homeschooled kid won?

David said...

Nope. My sanctification's busted. Thanks, stronger brother.

David, you are such a punk.

It's an honor having you as a commenter.
