Sardoodledom was one of the words in the spelling bee competition that is going on in Washington. One of the 11 year old contestants received the word sardoodledom, which means a melodramatic plot. After he composed himself from laughing over the word, he asked the questions that he needed to ask in order to try and spell it and he succeeded.

Has anyone ever watched the national spelling bee? I was flipping through channels one day and I saw that it was on and I was just astonished as to how well these children do in front of so many people. It draws you in and you can't help but watch them and react when they spell the words. If you have never watched it, I suggest that you do.

This reminds me of the movie Akeelah and the Bee. This movie was based on a true story. I thought that movie was great. The process in which these children go through in order to take part in these spelling bees is so impressive. Here is a link to find out more about the movie.
