Oh my! I just forgot how to spell queues, telling my daughter there weren’t any at Tesco, for a couple of minutes I couldn’t spell the word queues, even now it looks wrong 🤣

Brain is definitely winding down.

Oh. When I saw this thread title I thought it was going to be about Latin or even in Latin. I was getting my brain in gear for it too.

I thought it might be a recipe for something tasty and Mexican. grin

I say that too, rockbran.
But IMO a lot of words look weird and wrong if you look at them with anything more than a cursory glance.

YES please, a nice paella recipe would be good as long as I don't have to wait in a supermarket queeeeuee for the ingredients - or is that quuueuuue?

What word in the English language has five consecutive vowels?

It sounds like the Spanish waiter in Fawlty Towers ( Farty Owls )

The majority of people on our local FB page spell it que or even cue.😏
