Well, I can relate to that. Till I had occasion to buy a bottle of it,
I was seriously under the impression that that brand-name for
ibuprofen was "Mole-Trin"! :-)


All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"––a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
–Mark Twain

Once we recognize that we do not err out of laziness, stupidity,
or evil intent, we can uncumber ourselves of the impossible burden of
trying to be permanently right. We can take seriously the proposition
that we could be in error, without necessarily deeming ourselves
idiotic or unworthy.
