5. dithyramb (spelled it wrong)
8. tsuga (i didn't know it but I followed the other lady's lead)
9. cosymmedian (when we unsuccessfully spelled the first 5 letters one at a time, i conceded)
I stopped the madness by saying "I WILL TAKE THE DRINK TICKET INSTEAD OF THE GIFT CERTIFICATE" but the lady thought i was pretty cool and gave me the gift certificate afterwards and I gave her the drink ticket. So... we were 2nd and 3rd, whichever you'd like me to be this week.
I also got a banana Tootsie Roll Pop from grandfather, which is weird. I bet it's gross.
