Wordie

Wordie. Wordie! It’s not Werty but hey.

A few summers after I got my nickname I attended camp with a kid who spent the entire seven weeks asking me to spell stuff. I figured he knew I was sixth grade spelling bee champ or something. It wasn’t until the second to last day of camp that I realized he thought my nickname was “Wordy” and that he assumed I was a word genius (or something).
