There are now
days left until I move home to the States.
All of my life I have struggled with spelling… It is not, in any way, my strong point. I am more thankful for spell check than you can possibly guess!
Throughout my life teachers have used little lessons to try and make things stick… such as…
The HIPPO sat on the POT and made A MUS! HIPPOPOTAMUS
I before E except after C.
And my very favorite…
The word DESSERT always has two s’s because you always want MORE!
However, I’m finding I have relapsed into having trouble knowing the difference between DESSERT and DESERT.
Because, right now, I want more of BOTH!
There is nothing in the world like eating an ice cream cone in the heat of a Phoenix afternoon…
A day in the DESERT with DESSERT melting down your arm! Or wait is it the other way around? I’m not sure…
(Just to avoid weird comments… please note that this is a joke and I still do know the difference between the words! 🙂
