Walking Dictionaries

By Beth Beutler
1     "Labyrinth. L A B- Y R I N T H. Labyrinth. A series of paths winding around itself."
 
2     "Very good, Tyler," the judge said. "Jacob, the next word is fulcrum."
 
3     "Fulcrum. F U L C R U M. Fulcrum. The support upon which a lever turns."
 
4     "Excellent, Jacob," the judge said.
 
5     "What kind of words are these, anyway?" I thought to myself. I was beginning to wonder why I had entered the Spelling and Definition Bee!
 
6     I have always been a good speller. But it is hard for me to remember the meanings of the words I spell. That's what makes this contest different. We were given a list of 200 words and their definitions. I studied. I really did. I just don't remember some of these words being on the list!
 
7     My turn is coming. Only two people are in front of me!
 
8     "Maria. The next word is definition."
 
9     "Definition!" I thought. How do you define "definition"? I was really beginning to panic.
