Have you ever participated in a Spelling Bee? If so, do you remember what word you went out on?
Could have been my name. Thank God for spellcheck.
Yep me too.
Caterpillar. I used an e instead of an a as the second to last letter, realized immediately that I had misspoke, and wasn't allowed to correct myself. :(
That happened to me with my word. Forgot the second p in apprentice, immediately realized it, so I just decided to butcher the rest of the word.
I was in spelling bees every year I was in elementary school. The only word I remember going out on was 'gardener'. I had a friend whose last name was 'Gardner' and I tripped up on that.
In a school wide spelling bee I got out on the word "apprentice".
No official spelling bees, but a few in some classes in back in high school. I won them all. 😊 What a nerd.
classes back in high school** 😂 Looks like I need to go back.
