I am a Spelling Master. (Like a Zen Master.)

But I have trouble spelling 'biscuit.'
And 'community.'
And, of all words, 'school.' Spelling this one correctly is especially difficult when I type.

I used to have trouble spelling 'parallel' until a friend turned me on to this mnemonic: there are two parallel L's in the middle of the word. Sweet!

I remember misspelling(is that the correct spelling of misspelling?) balloon in a spelling contest when I was young. I was so mad at myself! Spelling was one of my favorite subjects because it was so objective, and I happened to be pretty good at it. Grammar, on the other hand, usually had me in tears!
