Spell shocked on stage, who'd have guessed?
This comes as no surprise to my copy editors (saviors, each and every one of them, even the ones I've driven out of journalism), but I am not a great speller.
This is in equal parts because:
A) When in doubt, I make up words.
B) I was too easily distracted to be a good student and retain useful knowledge.
So when I was asked to be a celebrity speller in Moorhead High School's musical, "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee," I knew the joke would be on me.
