misspellings

I’ve always had trouble with spelling. I’ve learned it by rote and through memory devices (for example, whenever I spell people, my brain says “pee-oh-pull”, because I had a lot of trouble with the order of the e and the o when I was younger). These days, my most problematic word is surprise. I always want to spell it “suprise”. I know it’s wrong, but for some reason it’s how I always spell it.

  1. I’m with you on spelling problems. I had to look at your two spellings of surprise for a bit before I even figured out what was different. Thank goodness for the new browser spell checker.
