We’re all here, so…

I have been reading the Laura Ingalls Wilder “Little House” series, and at least once per volume I am just blown away by the way people lived a hundred years ago.  This morning I was reading about how, during a mild winter in town, everyone got together one Friday evening and started a literary club.  Now it was the first meeting and it was spontaneous, so they didn’t have anything planned, but they were all there and wanted to do something together.  What did they do?

They had a spelling bee.

That’s right.  Every man, woman, and schoolchild split into teams and they had a spell-off.

Makes me wonder how it would go if I invited the neighbors over for a spelling contest.  They would probably laugh in my face.  🙂
