Wednesday, Wednesday Bloggy Friends!
I have a funny Wednesday memory for ya. As a child, I was a really good speller. In the sixth grade I was even the school-wide Spelling Bee champion. The next year I went into the championship again, after winning once more in my grade level. This year I was a clear favorite. To ensure victory, my grandmother and I practiced like crazy the weekend before. Once the contest day came around, I felt positive I'd get up there and win it again. The bee took place in the auditorium, in front of the whole school. On the stage next to me, the representatives from each grade anxiously anticipated their turn to spell. When it came my turn the moderator announced my first word, "Wednesday." I knew I had this one in the bag. "Wednesday, W-e-d-n-e-s-d-a-y, Wednesday," I finished confidently. I turned to sit down, knowing I had spelled it correctly. "I'm sorry that's wrong," the moderator said, stopping me in my tracks. "The correct answer is CAPITAL w-e-d-n-e-s-d-a-y." I forgot to mention the "W" was supposed to be capitalized! So there I was, the previous year's champion, and I was out on my first word! I was so humiliated. When I got off the bus that afternoon a bratty girl in the front seat peered over at me and said, "I'm glad you lost the spelling bee today!" I looked back at her and in my sassiest voice I said, "I'm glad too, I didn't want to win it anyway!"
I hope you guys have had a great day! Talk to ya soon.
