And I don't mean Tori.
Miss Spelling READS the Dictionary every morning with her cup of peppermint tea. She can spell Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious backwards without even closing her eyes. She's calm under pressure, looks good in green, doesn't spell check her tweets, and never needed the assistance of Mr. Spell Check.
|poor overworked guy!|
Not that I'll ever be as together as Miss Spelling, or become a pocket protector wearing Mr. Spell Check, but I'm making an effort to be more like her and use Mr. Spell Check less. Doesn't he look overworked?
To the end, as I write if I type a word and the red squiggly line attacks it, or if I pause in typing, not sure whether to use bare or bear, I do what my teachers always told me. I look it up.
And then I go a step further. I write the correct spelling and any notes I need on index cards (that I cut in half).
I thought I'd share some of my recent misspelled* words **.
