Traumatic Tuesday

In 4th grade I was in an advanced reading class with 5 or 6 other students.  Each week we had vocabulary words to learn…and then we’d go around the group and each discuss one of the words.  I clearly remember the one time I didn’t study my words.  When it was my turn, my word was ‘determined’.  How humiliating was it when I pronounced it  deter-mind-did?  Very.  Everyone laughed.  And now EVERY TIME I see or hear the word determined, I am transported back to feeling stupid. 

Really, not a big deal in the grand scheme of things…but it’s sticks in my mind.  And I have a really bad memory so it always amazes me that something so silly is stuck in it.

 

Have a fabulous Tuesday and see you tomorrow!
