If you see this man lurking on your doorstep in the upcoming weeks, no harm shall come to him! He is a federal employee in the performance of a constitutionally mandated mission — counting. When not counting, he is spelling. He is a simple man and his name is Matthew Lawrence.
This Monday is the third (or fourth, not clear on that) annual ‘Not About the Buildings’ Spelling Bee. This has been a lot of fun in the past — costs only $5 to participate and nothing to watch. Mr. Lawrence is the Master of Ceremonies, and is very good at this sort of thing it turns out. Go cheer on or (lightly) heckle your friends. Better still, put your money where your mouth is and get up on that stage and compete. I’m pretty sure you just head over and sign up (although I think it will be limited to a manageable number, which I don’t know what that is right now). Great prizes, honor, glory, and a crown.
It’s a Providence Phoenix Editor’s Pick. Learn more about Not About The Buildings. Remember, there’s prizes. . . and a crown.
