Spelling Impaired

Husband is spelling impaired. Now to be fair, it is not his fault. English is his second language AND he is dyslexic. He is super smart and is working on becoming fluent in a third language purely from audio-lessons and practicing with his Spanish speaking employees but he cannot spell to save his life. I suspect he is missing the portion of the brain that usually houses spelling. Or it is so full of information like how to fix ten gazillion things with duct tape that there is no room for spelling.

This morning he was goofing around with a game - Bookworm - on my cell phone and asked me, "How do you spell ox? A-U-X?"

I laughed so hard I cried.

I'm a bitch but GOD it was funny!

well... technically... aux is pronounced ox. short for auxiliary. which is probably where his mind was anyway.

You know, he could've been trying to spell Auxiliary. Guys who fix things with duct tape typically try to spell such words.

Oh, I see I wasn't the first to think of that.

Hehehehehe! If you're a bitch, I am too because I make fun of Mom #2 and Baby Boy all the time . . . and they don't have the excuse of English as their second language either. They just spelling stupid. ;-)

That's funny! Has he read this post? I can hear him say "woman".
My boss can't spell either and is always asking me how to spell things. However, he's not smart like hubby he's just a wanker...

That's probably how my husband would have spelled it, and he only speaks one language and is NOT dyslexic, so I guess we can let it slide...this time.
