July Writing Prompts, Day 14 – Writing weirdos

From Putting My Feet in the Dirt (https://puttingmyfeetinthedirt.com/), July’s prompts are here: https://puttingmyfeetinthedirt.com/2019/07/01/july-2019-writing-prompts/

And today, July 14, the prompt is “Writing weirdos”

Writing weirdos…weird is one of those words where i is not before e except after c.  Stupid rule.  And let’s be clear, it’s not a rule of English, but a rule of English Spelling!  And there are really good reasons for a lot of what we think of as weird spelling in English, what with the Great Vowel Shift and all (not to be confused with the great bowel shift…too much information?)

And now, to end this post, here is the parking lot we were in at Butchart Gardens – so at the end of the day, we could say we had to return to Camel-Lot…
