For this New Years Eve we decided to host a spelling bee. My favorite thing about spelling bees is they focus a large group on a single conversation. To make the bee more interesting we add one rule, anyone can make up a rule at any time.
Some of my favorites last night were: You can call your mother and ask her how to spell. Someone then made the rule that the best speller in the circle was her mother, then shell called him. Another made the rule, "I get three tries."
