What Spelling Bee Word Tripped You Up?

On Fridays, we post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else’s reply, ask a completely unrelated question to the group. Whatever you want! On to this week’s topics of discussion…

1. Let's revisit your spelling bee career. I clearly remember misspelling "champagne" at Lakeview Elementary in 1989, which nearly drove me to drink. What word knocked you out of your school's spelling bee? If you never missed a word and are typing this beside a giant spelling bee trophy, you're entitled to a little gloating.

2. What's the last thing you Googled? (Mine is "where are they now spelling bee champions," which led me to this.)

3. Who was the most famous person to graduate from your high school? 

4. What's a topic you'd like to see us tackle in a future edition of "12 Things You Might Not Know About ________"? Books, voice actors, condiments, Lafayette College, what-have-you.

5. And now I'll throw it open to you guys. If you have a question for your fellow _flossers, ask away!

What Shows Up When You Google Yourself?

On Fridays we ask a bunch of unrelated questions. Your answers help get us through the afternoon. On to this week's topics...

1. What's the strangest thing someone could learn about you by Googling your name? And has anyone who shares your name done anything remarkable? There's a Jason English who's almost exactly my age. He allegedly bit someone's ear off and flushed it down the toilet. It will be tough to rise above that in the search rankings.

2. What's something you regret quitting?

3. If you could change one rule in any board game, what would it be? (If you have a specific house rule you think the world should adopt, let us hear it.)

4. Do the kids celebrate Mischief Night/Devil's Eve in your neighborhood? What's the worst incident you remember?

5. Got a question for the group? Ask away. Have a great weekend and happy Halloween!
