Are You Hungry for an Omelet?

I was in New York City at the 9/11 Memorial Museum a few weeks ago and spotted this creative spelling for omelet. Or is it omelette?


Evidently, the French and British prefer the French spelling of omelette, whereas Americans seem to be a bit more independent and prefer omelet.

The more creative species spell it any way they want!

This little American deli in New York City preferred to do it their own way: omellette.

Hmmm. Sunday morning. Yummy eggs, beaten, cooked, covered with asparagus and feta cheese; or topped  mushrooms, onions, and peppers, and cheese then folded over and served on a warm plate with hot buttered crispy rye toast. Nothing better. It doesn’t matter how you spell it. Just make it hot and tasty. Thanks.


Worst of the Week: Writing Errors in Everyday Life: Your, You’re

This trash can owner is obviously annoyed with some of his dog-walking neighbors.

OC Shout, fall 030

This error is so easy to avoid.

You are = you’re.

Omitted punctuation doesn’t help this frustrated person’s message either.
