Small House of Everything

Small House of Everything

Wednesday, February 3, 2016


To liven things up in a small English village it was decided to hold a town-wide spelling bee,  To everyone's surprise, one of the final two contestants was the village blacksmith; the other -- to no one's surprise -- was the town's most learned barrister.  The battle raged well into the night as first one, then the other, correctly spelled each word.  Then, at just a few minutes before midnight, the blacksmith faltered while the barrister spelled the final word.

The winning word?  Auspice.
