The Spelling Bee!

Nerd Alert! The hubs and I watched a few pieces of the National Spelling Bee Championship yesterday, and it was seriously so entertaining. Seeing all these little personalities and how freaking SMART these kids are was incredible, and their little mannerisms and reactions to things were beyond endearing. It wasn’t as boring as this yawn indicates…

I think this article from CNN really sums up the top five moments. Dev was our favorite…Click this tweet to see how proudly he went out!

I was NEVER good enough at spelling to get past our middle school’s spelling bee, but I did know a girl who went to DC once, so that’s cool, right? However, watching the BEE did sort of takes me back to my days of pretending to be a ridiculous spelling be contestant in our performance of “25th Annual Putnum County Spelling Bee” with my college’s musical theater review group…

Me, circa 2006, as Logainne Schwartzandgrubenierre aka Schwarzy.

It was also a little bit crazy to see how many of these kids REALLY HAD THE QUIRKS that this zaney group of college kids embodied on stage that year. So thank you, spelling bee, for stirring up memories that have nothing to do at all with a REAL spelling bee, but have everything to do with awesome friends and an awesome time in my life.

And if you’re bored, you may recognize Jesse Tyler Ferguson in this video from his Broadway days… Enjoy your musical theater Friday!! You’re welcome.
