What Is Grey’s Anatomy Showrunner Shonda Rhimes Excited About?

We may all be eagerly anticipating Grey's Anatomy Season 10, but Shonda Rhimes, mastermind behind the addicting medical drama, has a different televised event she's looking forward to. So, what's making Shonda excited this week?

The National Spelling Bee!

Shonda apparently couldn't help but share her happiness about the Scripps National Spelling Bee, since she took a break from her Twitter hiatus to write, "Everything joyful in the world can be encompassed in the following five words: IT IS SPELLING BEE WEEK. @ScrippsBee #getyourBEEon"

To outsiders, this might seem like an overreaction to a bunch of kids saying letters, but as any spelling bee addict knows, "the Bee" can be just as thrilling as any sports championship. It's like the Superbowl for brainiacs and Scrabble enthusiasts.

That said, we're not sure we can agree with Shonda that "everything joyful in the world" can be found in the sentence "it is spelling bee week." We can't be entirely joyful until we get Season 10 and find out if Richard lives and Calzona survives!

Are you a spelling bee fan? Sound off in the comments below.
