Words Are Fun

 I find it interesting that during a spelling bee, one can ask for the word in a sentence.  As I like to use as many big words as I can in order to expand my vocabulary and sound smarter, I think I should practice.  You know, in case I’m ever asked to judge a spelling bee.

Whenever I don’t know a word, I always try to figure out the definition on my own.  Hopefully, I’ll get close to their meaning.  I mean, if I’m going to be reading the definitions to countless children hoping to win the national spelling bee, I’m going to need to know the meaning of a lot of words, right?  Especially big ones.  Those are the ones that stump the contestants and show who will truly dominate the international world of competitive spelling.
