In ninth grade I went to my junior high school’s district spelling bee competition. You know what word disqualified me: barbecue. Yes, barbeque? BBQ? Oh that word still haunts me to this day. I cried when I realized the fact that I missed THAT WORD. So in a very small way, I understand Akshay Buddiga’s collapse. “Alopecoid” is far far more challenging than friggin BBQ!
