The universe makes a joke

So, one of the many reasons my job had lost some of its joy was when my new supervisor, in all seriousness, told me that one of the top things I needed to work on was my handwriting. When I laughed and said I must be doing a pretty good job then, she got very defensive, and told me neat handwriting was essential, even though 99% of our work was done on computers. I started typing up my time sheet.

Now I'm working through an editor's comments on a manuscript. The editor has one of those half print, half cursive styles. And I am staring at a word followed by a question mark that's scribbled in the margin.

It could be:

or something completely different. It could start with a j or have an l in it.

I have no idea.
