Post 372: I Can Hear the Ocean

How do you look up a word if you don’t know how to spell it? That used to drive me crazy back in the days B.S. (Before Spellcheck) Now I just type to my best ability, wait for the wiggly red line, click on it and see what my options are.

Were I to list an item that would be used to contain soup, let’s say, I would type terrain and – Uh-oh! No wiggly line. Well, there’s your problem, right there.

LARGE SOUP TERRAIN SHAPED LIKE SEASHELL W/LADDEL – $20

condition: like new

NO CHIPS LADLE HAS SEAHORSE ON HANDLE AND SOUP TERAINN IS VERY LARGE CLAM SHELL SHAPED VERY BEAUTIFUL CALL

As submitter Ralph said, “Terrain? Terainn? If at first…” You say ladle and I say laddel. I certainly would like to hear its beautiful call. But not this time.

  1. The terrain”s a bit clammy,
    Down here in Miami.
    I’m riding in the saddle,
    With my favorite laddel.
    Large soup is the main course,
    Just don’t eat the seahorse.
