The Evils of Spell Check

Marlo and I were IMing this evening from two different rooms (beats yelling across the house).

I admit to her that I don't know a function on my computer.

She writes, "Your dumb."

I retort, "At least I know the contraction to "you are" is "you're."

It's almost as good as when we were doing some college applications for her this afternoon and she tried to convince me that gospel is spelled gosspil.

Good grief! Spell check has destroyed the spelling capacity of an entire generation.

Bar Exam Tomorrow

Tomorrow, Wednesday and Thursday is the bar exam.

It's nearly 9:00 p.m. Monday night and I've finally stopped cramming. If I don't know a subject or rule by now, I'm not gonna. I've just got to trust that the amount that I do know is sufficient and not worry about the things I don't know. (At least, unless and until someone proves that worrying spontaneously converts to unlearned knowledge).

Cross your fingers for me.
