My oldest son always had trouble with spelling. Then we tried some memorization techniques, and he could spell words quite well. Backwards. Lol. We accepted his poor spelling skills. He made up for it with his ability to fix things that hubby hated to touch. (Plumbing, electrical things, etc.) By the time he was in high school, his reading and spelling had improved all on its own. He deliberately sends me texts using homonyms of the words he means to use. He thinks this is hilarious because we continue to make fun of his vocabulary and spelling skills. I am going to show him these letters from Bowe Bergdahl. Maybe he can crack the code. Bowe’s spelling is atrocious.
If it was a code it probably referenced some family reference that would only be known by his parents. Mind you this is just pure speculation.
I have a bad habit of wanting to misspell license as licensce I know it is wrong but dang I want to sneak that “s” in their.
As far a skill sets go I’d sure miss an excellent handyman before I missed a good speller.
