Weird words.

I was just writing an email to my boss and wrote the word "answer." I am still sitting here looking at that word thinking it just does not look right. I know that's how you spell it, but do you ever have that thing where you write a word and it just doesn't look right, and then you really look at how it's spelled for the first time in your life and realize that is the most ridiculous spelling of a word ever?

Answer? How is that "ans-er"? Man, English is weird.

Spencer is more than eager to point out everything that is phonetically incorrect--silent K's, Phs and Fs, f's that sound like V's (like in "of") etc. But on the plus side, I get to read Junie B Jones each night.....
