I've never been good at spellings. My Mom always charted this down to lack of practise! And I think she had something right there, cos now a days I find that my spelling has improved... drastically!
Dont get me wrong, I'm not consiously trying to improve on my spelling. God! I'm not a geek! But its been 6 months now that I am living with my new hubby and heres how it went when he needed to send an email out just this morning...
H: Rationaaaaleeee, Whats the spelling of "occasionally"
Me: (I was actually in the bathroom with my mouth full of foam... from the toothpaste! and not because I'm crazy!)
H: <Repeats himself>
Me: Umm 'O' 'C' (This much I was sure of!) 'A' 'S' 'I' 'O' 'N' 'E' no 'A' 'L' 'L' 'Y'!
H: Arent there 2 s'?
Me: Err... Umm... use spellcheck!
So in effect every time hubby needs to send an email from home, he enlists someone whos better at him at spellings! (FYI, that could be ANYone!) Granted the words are easy compared to even the most juvenile spelling bees, why just today day he called out, "Hey, how do you spell 'Laury', she sent me an email and I need to reply" !
PS: A penny for each wrong word spelt here! :-)

When i was in school I spelt"coffee" as "kauphy". My teacher who was very liberal in giving marks could not give any marks since not even a single letter was correct.

haha! Indeed..That be my brother for you. For Whooping Cough he had written Ubeenkaff in one of his term papers.
My parents haven't got over the fact that he managed to get all the letters wrong. They thought he was a genius.
not that I am any better, but i would have figured the 'p'...he already had mallu qualities in him.:)
Oh, btw, it's practice not practise.hehe!
