Fun Fact: I do the New York Times crossword puzzle every day. I have a subscription and either at 10pm or 6pm, depending on the day, I receive a notification about the puzzle for the next day.
Monday and Tuesday puzzles are very easy- I finish them rather quickly. But the rest of the week can be any degree of challenging. Suffice to say, I tend to start the puzzles in the evening but finish sometime the next day.
This past week I was working on Sunday’s puzzle. For those of you who are not puzzle fans, in a weekly newspaper, Sunday is the biggest puzzle. So I had 3/4 of the puzzle completed, but I was struggling with the lower right corner. The central clue that I was struggling with was:
76 (across) Posted One’s Thoughts
I finally got 76 (down) Abacus Piece- BEAD
So I knew my word at 76 Across started with a B…
hmmmmmmmm- I thought…What is “posted one’s thoughts” that begins with a B????
And then I was able to compete the puzzle…
