Spelling

This blog may sound bitchy & I am sorry for that..I will go ahead & apologize before I start! I am not writing this to sound rude...rather, educate!

C-o-l-O-m-b-i-a

Yep, that is how you spell it..COLOMBIA. There is no U in the spelling of the country. When you put a U in place of the 2nd O, you are now talking about the clothing store.

More than anything it irks me that my family spells it wrong. I have tried multiple times to make it noted, in a nice way, but I do not know what to do anymore. I feel it is important to know how to spell the name of the country that LP will be from. I feel that if your new grandchild, great grandchild, etc will be from this country, the least you can do is learn how to spell it!

Please, no more U's! Only O's!! Say it with me...U equals shopping, O equals LP!!

So please, please, please...Spell It Right! It really does bother me when you don't :D

  1. Yep. I went to Columbia the school, and I dated a guy from Colombia at the same time. It's a O people! an O!!! It bugs me too, don't worry!

  2. Ha! Love this!!! My personal pet peeve lately is "lose/loose" and all the people who use the wrong one when speaking of loss. Can we not learn to spell things correctly, people?!?

  5. That would frustrate me too. It's not a difficult word to spell, and yes, it's obviously a VERY important country!

    Good luck on your journey. Looking forward to following along.

  6. LOL. I too would be totally frustrated! Especially when it is a word that will come up repeatedly and is something quite important! Good luck on your journey.
