Indeed. There's more dignity to spelling bees than to child beauty pageants, but there isn't much more kindness, especially for preteens.

I don't mind a duck watching. It's swans--- hideous, hissing, aggressive ---that terrify me.

That would be kiknophobia. They're really winged snakes in galoshes.

One of them picked 'cywydd'! That makes me happy.
