Spelling bee

Standard

Just a little peeve to start the weekend:
It drives me absolutely insane when people cannot spell the word “dilemma”. It seems like five out of six people I see using the word online spell it incorrectly.
The most common misspelling I see is “delima”. Okay, fine, you don’t know how to spell it, but THAT spelling? Is not even how it’s pronounced!!! The word is pronounced dill-lem-ma. Not dee-lime-ah. And “delima” spells dee-lime-ah. It sounds like a guy from Jamaica talking about beans.
And don’t even get me started on “could of” and “should of” instead of could’ve and should’ve. *Falls on the floor, gnashing teeth and foaming at the mouth*
Best wishes for the weekend, everyone!

About msmaryb

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.

    “I’m suppose to…”
    “Don’t say that explicative…”
    “I wait with baited breath…”
    Whoops, you got me started. Now I’ll stop. But, I’m just saying…I’m right there with ya.
