What creating a story and cooking a soup have in common
Hey email readers: yes, the version that got sent out to you had Gollum misidentified as Bilbo in the image caption! That's my bad, not Keela's: I captioned the still from The Two Towers and I don't know what I was thinking 😅. It's already fixed on the web version. Congrats: you passed the "close reading test" if you noticed. Thanks for reading closely!
I confess I am a “jump to recipe” person unless it’s something unfamiliar and new, like the first time I made butter chicken. But who needs the whole story when you’re only trying to find out the temp and time for cooking tater tots in the air fryer? (380 for 9-10 minutes, by the way)
Really? Smeagol identified as Bilbo?
