Terrific Tuesday

Two terrific tour stops today:
Lovez 2 Read (Giveaway here)
Reading in the Corner
And one to keep me down to earth a little:
Literature Young Adult Fiction

Do you want to know my favorite thing about the word terrific? The way the gander tries to spell it in Charolette's Web. Remember? I looked it up for you. "'I think,' said the gander, 'it's tee double ee double rr double rr double eye double ff double eye double see see see see see." To which Charolette replies, "What kind of an acrobat do you think I am?" The whole exchange is quite lovely. Charolette's Web is one of my favorite children's books. I had to go fix all of my terrifics because I had put a double ff in each of them.

What words do you have a difficult time spelling?
