Spelling is hard. Hard for me, anyway. This blog would be a disaster without spellcheck.
Not only are regular words tough, sometimes, so are Fresno street names. Here are five common Fresno streets that I always mess up spelling.
5. Ashlan. I always want to say “Ashland”.
4. Maroa. The o & a combo throws me.
3. Divisadero. It seems like the “a” should be an “i”.
2. Stanislaus. A lot of s to deal with.
1.Tuolumne. Where the hell did you even come from, “n”?!
I’m not the only Fresnan in town that sucks at spelling. Just a few of the replies on Twitter:
Honorable mention goes to “Dakota”. It should not be that hard for me or anybody, but it is. Hell, sometimes everything is hard. Life is a series of Alluvials.
