Josh Malamy left Chicago when he broke up with his boyfriend earlier this year, and he returned home to the comforting arms of Brooklyn. Upon arrival, he found the Williamsburg Spelling Bee and drowned his sorrows in the dictionary. Malamy's story ran in the Times last week, which also reported the happy news that Malamy and his ex are exploring the possibility of a reunion. That means Josh is moving back to Chicago, and he wants to keep up (or, maybe, show off) his spelling chops via a local bee. Is there already such a thing? If not, look for one soon.
