i fear for the world

For two and a half years now we have lived on Lilac Drive. Look closely at that word--lilac--it is not a strange word nor does it describe a strange plant. In fact, it is a glorious example of God's creative talents and proof (positive) that she wants us to be happy. It is beautiful and fragrant. What more could someone want?

And yet I am shocked on an all-too regular basis when I am asked to give my address, I enunciate clearly, and the Person Taking Down The Pertinent Information asks me how to spell it. !!!!! Get a grip, people! This is basic! Either there are a lot of really bad spellers out there, or it's time to go back to, spell it with me now, b-a-s-i-c-s.

LOL... you are not alone. If it weren't for the cash registers which tell kids how much change they owe someone, they'd be fully flummoxed. It's quite sad really.
