So yeah, today is the National Spelling Bee. Or as we superdorks call it: The Bee. No lowercase letters will do for The Bee. Oh, no. ‘Tis caps all the way, baby. 🙂
What is it about the Scripps National Spelling Bee that draws me in? It certainlyisn’t so that I can commisserate with my fellow spellers. Oh dear god no. My spelling is atrocious. Thank the gods that be for spell check. Actually I’m not sure why I love The Bee so much, I just do. Maybe it’s because I like to see the kids concentrate so hard. Maybe it’s because I like to see them get that sense of accomplishment.
Okay okay, I’ll admit. It’s because I like to giggle at them. Cuz COME ON, they’re hilarious! I mean, sure it’s cool… but then you get contestants like EVAN O’DORNEY from a few years back.. and who can forget this interview?
I mean, it’s so awkward it’s PAINFUL. Painful and hilairous. 🙂
And tonight at 7pm CST – tune in to ABC to watch the finals! 🙂 Why not? Might be fun!
