Wait, you were giving me a hard time? I didn't even notice. Seriously, I am a terrible speller. Normally this would be where I blame the fact that english is my second language, but truth be told, I'm not any better with my first language.

Also, ya, I'm not the greatest speller. I have a lot of misspelled words in my auto-correct dictionary, apparently

To answer your question, yes, spelling is a part of Language Arts. Thankfully the teachers are teaching him how to spell and not me. I just have to make sure he does the prescribed homework and occasionally explaining to him, "That's just how it it is son. I have no idea why there are two g's in aggravated or why that letter is silent."
I can relate! My 1st language was not English either & many of the grammatical conventions & pronunciation of certain words (like "one") made no sense to me. "Won" sounds the same as "One"? Won makes a bit of sense phonetically, but one is really out there. And when I was in school, loooong time ago, the subject was simply "English". Language Arts sounds so much more sophisticated though!

I have a twisted, dry sense of humour, so even the feigned idioticity (not a real word) in my post is an attempt at soliciting a grin, if not a chuckle, laugh or guffaw.

EDIT: The fact that you did not notice me trying to give you a hard time makes me sad. Wasted effort at the keyboard.

Thought no one was watching huh? My spelling's usually pretty good, but u shuld see my comprension! Ever since I took the Evelyn Woodhead sped reddin' corse.

Probably not politically correct, but another classic. Unlikely an artist could get away with this today...

Mexican Americans go to night school take Spanish & get a B.....

A line from the lyrics of the song Mexican Americans. If you don't wish to suffer through the whole song, the line starts around the 36 second mark of the utube.

Did I kill this thread with my off the wall stuff?

Ok, so how many award shows are there & who cares other than the narcissistic entertainers themselves?

Solutions are easy. The real difficulty lies in discovering the problem.

I ordered a RODI system and sand off BRS and had it delivered close to the border for pick up about two weeks ago. Had the chance to pick it up today and they forgot the RODI system. How is that even possible? And they're closed today.

Also stepped in my girlfriend's dog's poop this morning.
