Round one started and one by one kids were dropping like flies. Rick and I would look at each other and think, "Idiots...i-d-i-o-t-s...idiots," anytime a kid spelled something wrong. Then up comes Aren and his word is "knavery". Wait, what? Who the hell knows how to spell that? Well, not Aren. Our kid was the next idiot to get benched the first round. Oh well. We laughed about it and told him he could pick a place for lunch and he insisted Greek food could cure all idiot speller woes. Smart kid, I tell you.
