I remember learning how to spell desert/dessert when reading Hardy Boys books in grade 1 & 2. #40 was Mystery of the Desert Giant. Unfortunately, the giant was not an actual giant — not even two regular-sized guys in a costume. It was some lights on the desert’s rocky ground at night, that signaled when it was okay for planes to land. Or something like that. My memory is fuzzy. Anyway, my mom noticed me writing the name of the book and used the chestnut “there’s two S’s in dessert, because you want two desserts, not two deserts.” I still think about that when I get dessert. Any pieces of advice like that you guys remember?
