My truth. My life.

Spell it

“Contestant number 1 please step up to the podium.  Your final word is biscuit.”

“Can I have it in a sentence please.”

“I ate a strawberry biscuit for dinner.”


“I’m sorry, that is incorrect.  If Travis gets his next word wrong, then you will be asked back”


“Contestant number 2 please step up to the podium.  Your final word is Lucky.”

“Can I have a definition please?”

“Lucky – producing or resulting in good-by chance : favorable”


“Congratulations Travis!  You are the Lanier Middle School 2013 Spelling Bee Champion.”


This is done for Trifecta

  4. And with that word – he was luck indeed! 🙂

  5. Pretty clever, D…

  6. You’re so fun, Deana. 🙂
    Clever is the perfect word

  7. I just wanted you to know that I enjoy your blog so much that I nominated you for the Awesome Award of Epic Awesomeness

  8. Clever and cute you get the 2 C’s Award from me 🙂

  9. Deana, this was a very smart way to approach the challenge. I love spelling bees, only I remember my daughter, Riley, being a finalist. The first kid got a word like “Luckier,” and then she was given “Baroque.” Honest to God, what were they thinking? It was third grade!! I still hold the grudge, I admit. Riley has completely moved on, though – such is motherhood!

    Nicely played, Deana. Peace, Amy

  10. This is so sweet!

  11. Ha ha! Can I have the etymology please? Brings back fond memories of the spelling bee. I used to be obsessed. 🙂

  12. I think Travis had the inside track on this one. Nicely done, imaginative take on the prompt.

  13. Quite possibly the cleverest working in of the word I’ve yet seen in one of theses challenges.

  14. This was brilliant!! Not only is this fun to read, but I myself am worried about somehow using the word wrong, and you made sure it is used correctly. Love this Deana!!!

  15. A biscuit, a biscuit, my trophy for a strawberry biscuit. I enjoyed it.

  16. Very creative!

  17. I will echo Tara – very creative! Nice take, deana!

  18. Ooh, this was sneaky…I like it! Brings back memories of Spelling Bee days. I made it to the city challenge and was out on my first word: Circuitous. Funny how I can’t remember to bring my grocery list to the store, but I can remember a misspelled word from fourth grade 🙂

  19. Haha – my favorite part: please use biscuit in a sentence. Nice fun take on the prompt

    I used to embarrass my girls by giving them spelling bees (in English) on the subway, making them repeat the word before and after they spelled it. Pronunciation was also a priority!
    Thanks for the memory, Deana.

  21. I would have spelled biscuit that way, too.

    This was fun!

  22. Your tricks put a smile on my face tonight…very nice.

  23. Oh you little cheat…lol Kidding, kidding (: I remember spelling bees. I only ever did one because I was (and still am) terribly stage shy. Clever piece!

  24. Some years back, a man and his wife in my neighborhood came out of their house to admire my new (now old) dog. They patted the dog, chatting about their own new pup and the difficulties of training. Finally the man looked at me and said, “would your dog like a bisquit?” And the wife? She was mortified at his spelling.

  25. Ha! Very clever! 🙂

  26. Sweet & ingenious piece ,Deana,loved it:-)

  27. Once in grade 5 I screwed the spelling of niece! Until I learnt the rule of I before E except after C! 😛

  28. Love how you worked definition into the story. Nice one, as usual.
