The Best Way to Lose a Spelling Bee


In 4th grade, I finished in second place in my school district’s spelling bee. This makes a much better story than winning, because of the word I could not spell correctly. That word was obeid (crap) obiedi (grrrr) obedei (blast it) obeedient that word that means you do as you are told.

My mother’s reaction was great:  “Of course he couldn’t spell it! He doesn’t know what that word means!”
