restaurant – I always spell it multiple times before getting it right! So annoying.  That’s the only one I have issues with 🙂

I studied Latin and Greek, so I rarely misspell either of those words. How do you misspell them? I used to spell ridiculous wrong (as rediculous), but then I learned Latin and found out that the word doesn’t have a prefeix (re-) but rather the base from ridere, to laugh at, like ridicule, and now I never get it wrong.

I can’t spell onomatopoeia for the life of me.

Vacuum.  I always have to check.  It’s funny though because throughout my Catholic school years, kids used to ask me how to spell EVERYTHING.  It’s just the silly word I can’t remember.

Broccoli.  I always seem to want to add an extra “l” in there.

Accidentally. I always have to think about it before I write/type it. If I don’t pay attention I’ll misspell it “accidently”. I’m such a grammar freak it bothers me that I always misspell it!

Vacuum.  Calendar.  Guarantee.  For some reason I get the letters mixed up in those and always have to double check them.

Separately. I google it a lot. As in I googled it before writing on this thread to make sure I spelled it right.

I was in spelling bees growing up so there isn’t a lot that I can’t spell.  DH and I were going through some of his old boxes from his last move that his ex-GF helped him pack.  She wrote “tang tops” instead of “tank tops” and “cloths” instead of “clothes” on a couple of boxes.  At first, I thought “Wow, he cannot spell to save his life” but he said she was responsible for labeling the boxes.  It cracks me up all the time and I REFUSE to get rid of the TANG TOP box…maybe one day I’ll actually find one and then I’ll have the box for it already!
