Last night I was telling Derek about my misspelling of ‘millennium,’ and how every once in a while, you get that really weird sensation of forgetting completely how a word is spelled. You can’t visualize it in your head, and no combination of letters seems right. You know, words like ‘gratuitous’ and ‘cantaloupe.’ ‘Irradiation’ ‘Aspberger’s’ ‘genuflect’ ‘hoarsely’ ‘communicable’ ‘mitochondrion’ ‘Rachmaninoff’ ‘bellicose’

Derek said, “Yeah, one time I forgot how to spell ‘if.’
