I'm hoping some one here can assist in sharpening up an image to discern what word is written. Here is the image:

I am needing the clearest picture possible for the word with the white mark to the right of it. Can some one assist?

Thank you!

I`m sorry i don`t have the know how to clear the image up ..... but

I`d say the word is "often" .

The stack of words to my eyes reads ......

Man/Mam and Baby

I'm going with onion...maybe that's why they'll need the chewing gum later

Shopping list?

Seems like a large image. Can you reduce it smaller and then look at it with a magnifying glass. Sometimes making it smaller will make it clearer.

Just an idea.

Anything to do with the homefront things?

Just I'm curious as if you've had any current events.

Hope all is well.

I thought often at first too but theres no discernible t.

Maybe some context will be nice OP? I mean I think I can make out things like (Mom) - M, Chewing, Mom & Baby, Sterile (something)

Thank you all so much. I intentionally didn't give context to see what you awesome folks would come up with.

The word just above it is "bib". The word in question I believe (after jacking around with it in PS CS4) on my own is "tooth". The words on the page as far as I can tell are...

Mom & Baby
pacify [pacifier spelled wrong]
unknown word followed by (wash cloth band aid)

Upper right corner:
pillow saliva
chewing gum

Lower half:

(Mom) - M
sterile swab
(regular envelope)
scotch tape
room tempture [temperature spelled wrong]

Okay, some one else has argued they see "spoon" where I see "tooth". But when you look at the other words that start with s (straw, saliva, sterile, swab, scotch) this particular word does not appear to start with a cursive s. But at the same time when I look at words that start with t (tape tempture) the cursive t's seem to slant to the right where this one does not, actually appears to slant to the left if anything.

Context: this appears to be a list of objects to be collected for DNA testing, so the word in question could easily be spoon or tooth...just would like to figure out with better confidence which it is if either!

Here is the only other pic I've got of this page:

Thank you all so much for any help you can provide!

Yes I concur with your other words

I can see tooth and spoon, but I am leaning towards spoon

As I increase contrast the first letter is very faint but becomes more obvious which leads me to say spoon.

I know it's not in your choices but I can also see apron
