The other day, Michael, who has a cold, put in a request for Mentholatum. You can see where he wrote it on my little note-board on the fridge.

Normally the consummate speller, in his congested state he could not think of how to write it, except phonetically:

I was perplexed by this momentarily, until I read it out loud. Menthol-A-dumb? Ah, Mentholatum!

So we got him some of this....

and then I turned it into this!

Reluctantly, I have reinstated the word verification for all comments on this blog. I don't like it any more than you do, but the rate of breakthrough spam was even more annoying. Thanks for understanding.
