Can you spell G-U-I-L-T?

This morning, my middle son was in his school's fourth grade spelling bee. Each time, he and his teammate went to the podium, my heart raced. All his classmates were gathered in the cafeteria cheering their team. I wanted him to win.
But just being at the Spelling Bee took tremendous effort on my part. I was late to work, the dog didn't get walked this morning and I had to take the other kids to school earlier than they would have liked. So, when my son's teammate misspelled a word in the final round, I was torn. I consoled him. Yet, a part of me felt relieved. One less demand on my time. Can you spell G-U-I-L-T!
