even the right password is wrong...

here is my code... is there is a difference, I can't see it.

import sys

password = input("Please enter the super secret password:  ")
attempt_count = 1
while password != 'openseseme':
    if attempt_count > 3:
        sys.exit("Too many invalid password attempts")
    pasword = input("Invalid password, try again:  ")
    attempt_count += 1
print("Welcome to Secret Town")

what I got was: treehouse:~/workspace$ python password_checker.py
Please enter the super secret password: 1234567
Invalid password, try again: 234567
Invalid password, try again: openseseme
Invalid password, try again: 1234567
Too many invalid password attempts

What am I missing?

Hey Amy Tomey, there is a typo.

The inner input is assigned to pasword instead of password

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!

THANKS! I couldn't see the forest for the trees.
