For the second year in a row, I’m a volunteer contestant in our community charity Spelling Bee. Up on stage with my two teammates, we’re decked out in giant red and yellow eyeglasses. (We didn’t get our act together to plan the usual elaborate team costume). In the audience, there are throngs of screaming spelling fans. As befits the occasion, tons of teams are decked out in BEESNESS attire — yellow striped shirts, wings and attractive antennae.
