Sounds like he's out to become a Hafiz.  Good luck with that test.

I won the spelling bee for all the second grade classes. I actually beat the third grade champ but lost to the fourth grade champ. For reasons I cannot recall, the word I lost with ("absurd") has stayed with me all these years.

I also came in 4th place in the field day long jump competition.

Yeah, I peaked early....

My losing word was "naive".  I can't remember anything else about that spelling bee, but damned if I don't remember the word I lost on.

Irony: n. 

1. When the author of an article about a spelling bee can't spell.

Our next word,  "Excommunication"

Well, thank Allah Arab-Americans are making a positive stereo-type for themselves. Asians have math, and now Arabs have spelling. Good for them.

Kind of the same thing here. "bombardment" was my downfall. 20-something years later I'm still confused as I I knew how to spell it.

I still remember when my high school gave the written prequals to a bee in my 10th grade year, the list included the word comedienne, which the (substitute) teacher pronounced 'comedian'.  Every single person in my (advanced English) class complained when we found out we'd all gotten the word wrong because of *her* error.  We actually had to explain the difference to her, she didn't know it.  It was too late by then, though.
