Dear Readers, you may notice the dates of the Blog do not match the Flash Post dates which are in real time. The blog was written in 2009 and saw the light of day 6 months back when my younger daughter discovered it and decided to bring it to you here.
May 18. “Are you ready for the spelling test, Button?”

May 18. “Are you ready for the spelling test, Button?”

“I am.”

“Did someone tutor you?”

“I got Rani to test my spellings at random. And I must say I fared rather well.”

“Spell GAUGE.”


“Correct. Now spell MISERABLE.”



“Why? I spell words after listening to the phonetics. Isn’t it pronounced misrable?”

“Yes. But there’s  an ‘e’ after the ‘s’. It’s an adjective derived from the word ‘misery’ which is a noun.”

“It’s much too complicated.”

“Nothing’s complicated once you understand the logistics.”

“Now spell DINING.”



“Can I have a go at it one more time please?”



“You’re right this time. Now let’s check your score. You’ve got 2 out of 5 and that’s nowhere close to being good.”
