Say what!?!?

I'm a spelling bee-er from way back.  I remember having to spell "tallow" to win my 5th grade spelling bee.  (Which is comical because this is how Ever pronouces the word "towel").  Spelling may be part of my hang up in using terms such as "BTW" and "TTYL".  I'm so out of the loop I can't even think of any more of those ....

Anyway, imagine my immense surprise today when I find that curiosity is spelled just like that --

C-U-R-I-O-S-I-T-Y.

What?  I couldn't believe my e-mail spell checker, I had to google it.  Where did the "u" from "curious" go??  I am perplexed.  And newly educated now.

I guess you learn something every day :)
