This past weekend was my first trip to Mississippi and it was so much fun. I had always had an aversion to the state because growing up it was impossible to spell. My mom even taught me a naughty jinkgle to remember it: M-I-S-S-I-S-S-I-P-P in your I. It worked, but come spelling test time I would spell it like mom taught me, PP in your I and everything and well, you know the rest of the story.
But this weekend the good people of Mississippi taught me a new song to remember it:
M - I - CROOKED LETTER - CROOKED LETTER - I - CROOKED LETTER - CROOKED LETTER - I - HUMP BACK - HUMP BACK - I!
