I’m not sure how this happened, but I’m heading to Farmington tonight with Sara Grant and Joe Furey. Uh oh.
The first annual Farmington Public School Foundation Adult Spelling Bee will be held Friday, May 11, 2012, from 7 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. at the Sarah Porter Memorial in Farmington, CT.
I was never a good speller. Now with spell checking enabled on all my devices I get to hide it.
My one spelling triumph came in the third grade at PS163Q. I won with “government” in our class spelling bee. It wasn’t a clean win. By the time I was called all the other more sensible spellings had been tried.
Strangely this is one of the few grade school events I remember vividly. Why would someone remember the word they won with fifty years after the fact? I’m baffled.
I’ll let you know how we do. I’m hoping Joe and Sara can prop me up.
