Why are there so few spelling bees for adults? I would compete in a heartbeat, for fun, and I'm not normally a competitive person. Spelling is one of my few really top-notch skills. AND I'm a librarian. (Not a nun. There aren't too many Jewish nuns. ;) )

I don't live in Kentucky, though.

The 36th annual Atlanta Open Orthographic Meet was held on Saturday, February 18.

It's 50 words in four rounds of 20, 15, 10 and 5 words each. The words start easy and get more difficult. Levee and insurgent were this year's Round One topical words.

The emcee jokes that the five words in Round Four can't be spelled. This year, only one speller of seven still in the competition got one of the five correct. She told the committee that was only because she plays the bodhran.

The winner, a staffer at the local daily "newspaper," got 37 out of 50. This was his first win.

I do, and I was in this bee about ten years ago. It was tough. It is much more difficult to stand up and spell than to spell correctly on paper! I think I lasted two rounds.
