A to Z Challenge: # 9 :   I  for Ingenious and Ingenuous

Is it stumbs
(is there such a word?)
Or is it stumps
A pair of words that gets
one stumped

Or is it to stumble
(there is such a word!)
To fall head over heels
and end up in a blob
Or is it remnants meaning stumps
of a broken tooth or tree branch

Utterly confusing
When it comes to spelling!

Is it ingenious
Being clever to no end
Intelligent,inventive and resourceful

Or is it ingenuous
Being naïve,innocent and artless
An easy target for a con man

Where one is blessed with a
photographic mind
Just a glance at the word
Is enough to determine
Whether its spelling is right or wrong

Otherwise it is akin to a situation
Where one is writing at the
Whiteboard in front of the class
The spelling is correct but still
It appears incorrect
Unless viewed from a distance

Utterly confusing
When it comes to spelling!

For A to Z Challenge


  1. Great post and a pleasure to read.


  2. ha. grammar alludes me quite often more than spelling, though spelling it seems has slipped quite a bit since my day...text speak has taken over...

  3. Grammar can be something that looks right but is wrong, a conundrum

  4. Can stumble with words easy and give the sentence a whole new meaning, sometimes not the best one either

  5. clever post. I read back to A and enjoyed your writing. Thanks for visiting me. It's all an adventure. Happy A to Z

  6. Fun post, I'm horrible at grammar and would be in big trouble without spell checker :)

  7. wow great post! I really enjoyed that! Thanks for linking up with us today!

  8. Wouldn't want to end up in a blob
    Or sound like my uncle Bob
    Spelling is not my thing, Mr Rainbowman
    It gets me confused like without a plan

    Great post!

    1. Thanks Blue Grumpster!
      Other bigger things do matter
      Spelling just a moot point
      Can guess the word by looking
      rather than take our attention!


  9. Whoa that is intense. And so well written. Thank you for sharing on Thoughtless Thursdays :D
