Remeber* (for Remember, etc.)

Remember, don't talk with your mouth full, especially if it's full of cookie crumbs, or it might come out sounding like Remeber instead. The best cookie in the world (or the most memorable, anyway, having been memorialized by Marcel Proust in the book Remembrance of Things Past) is the mouthwatering madeleine, pictured to the right. This cookie isn't quite as easy to bake as the typo is to make, but it's certainly worth a try. And if you're lucky, you might bump into a package of ready-made madeleines at the grocery store, just as I did a month or so ago. After making sure to pick some up on every single shopping trip after that, they suddenly disappeared one day, leaving me to continue wandering over to the spot where they had once lain and stare wistfully at the counter. If I'm remembering rightly, our typo for today was counted 16 times in OhioLINK.
