May I Have The Definition?
There is certainly a lot going on in our world these days but a glimpse of an announcement that the 2022 Scripps National Spelling Bee was going to be broadcast yesterday caught my attention. In recent years I remember it had been televised on ESPN but this year the viewing venue was changed so finding it took some pre-planning (perhaps a different sporting event in itself?). Television-watching has become so complicated, right? Or so it seems. I digress. Not to get off the subject, focus is important after all. In spelling bees and elsewhere in life. . .
The competition did not fail to impress me. As usual. The suspense. The intrigue. The twists, those turns. Along with the back stories that make any tale a bit more watchable, I was happy for this diversion. After all, I have long enjoyed words and wordplay is certainly a part of that. That said, isn't effective communication a part of any successful connection? Something to consider. . .
Congratulations to champion Harini Logan and the other spellers who participated.
