I saw a meme the other day that was probably the most relatable thing I had ever seen.

It said:

Me: I am a strong, intelligent, and university educated person.

Also me: Wed-nes-day

It got me thinking, I wonder what other little tricks people use on a regular basis.

Of course, our listeners did not disappoint.

Some of their answers were:

  • Tom or row for tomorrow
  •  i use bus-i-ness
  • Bananas by Gwen Stefani 😝 I must sing the song to know how to spell the fruit
  • I still make an "L" on both hands sometimes to make sure which way is left 😂
  • Lefty Lucy Righty tighty
  • I still say rest-a-u-rant when spelling restaurant.
  • B-e-a-u-tiful. Ever since Bruce almighty I can't think of it any other way and if I'm feeling blonde it's helpful for spelling
  •  30 days has September, April, June, and November. All the rest have 31, except February.. hahaha from the 3rd grade 
  • 8 x 8 = 64; 8 x 8 fell on the floor when they got up there were 64
  • also when multiplying by 9 I hold 10 fingers out in front of me and put down the finger I'm multiplying by so nine times three I would put down my third finger and it's 27 (I had never heard of this one, but it's fascinating to me.)
  • The sun rises in the east, E for eggs for breakfast. The sun sets in the west, an upside down M for midnight
  • Fiction - False (F, F) Non-Fiction - Not False (NF, NF)
  • Also spell out Feb-ru-ary so I spell it correctly, lol.
  •  Significant = sign-if-i-cant
  • To get her / together
  • Roy G. Biv for the colors of the rainbow. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet

The response I got the most was about Gwen Stefani and Bruce Almighty helping people spell. Who knew?

What little trick do you still use?
