The Worstest Word Ever

Do any of you have a word that you continually misspell?
Don’t you just hate it?
Generally, I am a fenomenally good speller…. but, umm… from time to time [← I’m avoiding The Worstest Word Ever© here…] one word will just trip me up and I can just never seem to get it right.
For me, that word is:
Occasionally.
Man I hate that word, occasionally.
And here is the weird thing. I’m spelling it correctly, above.
But tomorrow…. or even later tonight, if I had to spell the damn thing in a sentence, my spell-check feature would be catching it four or five times as I sought to correct myself again.
To me, there are at least nine or ten perfectly valid ways to spell occasionally.
One “c”.
Two “s”-s.
One “l”.
Ending in “ee”?
[Well, that lassed one, addmiteddly, I’m exxagerating a bit……]

What’s your Worstest Word Ever?

I quite agree with you. Occasionally I even mispell misspell, in addition to occasionally.

I write "last night" as one word every time. My spell checker doesn't like this, but I really think "lastnight" should be accepted as a compound word.

I have the occassional trouble with the word “definateley.” ;)

Someone at work always wrote "tommorrow", it drove me half nuts! I'm french and I can spell better than some of the people I've worked with over the years.
Being french is also a bonus when I mispell something...or misspell...or whatever.
Now Rhapsodyinbooks has me wondering.

I have trouble with occasionally too! And generally I have to think hard about separate because I think it looks better as "seperate"
