I May Have Travelled to Britain but That @$$ Traveled the Ball

No wonder I always feel like I'm spelling it wrong despite spell-checking it nearly every time.

Thank you, Grammar Girl. You've brought peace and understanding once again.

From her newsletter:

Have You "Traveled" or "Travelled"?

Do you look at the word "travelled" and think it looks wrong no matter how many l's you put in it?
I do. I always write it with two l's and have to go back and change it because it's one of those words that people spell differently in America and Britain.

* American spelling -- traveled

* British spelling -- travelled
