I know you've all been on pins and needles waiting for Jack's spelling bee results. Well.....he forgot. Yep, spaced it out. I'm not even sure what to say besides maybe, "phew...that was close". He just boarded the bus to school like any other day. Or as the spelling bee crowd would say, he committed an act of "transience".
Kids...are you reading this? (looking around) No?? Good! Because.... Apparently Jack advanced to some level of spelling bee to which he can "bring 4 friends and his family". I'm proud and everything but God help us all. (Spelling bee moderator-guy, aka the 1977 champion): "The word is 'snoozefest'" (Kid): "Uh...um.....'snoozefest'.......yeah....can you provide the origin and definition?" (Moderator guy): "From contemporary English. Synonym for 'spelling bee'"
