There are some people in this world who just intuitively know how to spell almost any word. Few know how to spell every word or Spelling Bees would never end. I almost got to join this select group but, where-ever we are before we are here, I must have missed a class or two.
I have this uncanny, at least uncanny to me, ability to look at almost any word and know if it is spelled correctly or not. The problem is that, usually, if a word is misspelled I have no idea how to spell it correctly. Pretty weird, eh?
I can tell you, it leads to no end of frustration. I really envy the prodigious mass of humanity who merrily misspell words left and right and are never aware of the errors. I have to misspell words and stare at them moronically knowing I don’t have the ability to correct them.
I came that close to the brass ring and missed! It really makes me sick.
My grammar ain’t that good neither.
