Recently, though, I decided to take a crack at the sucker myself. This Monday, I got about halfway through the Crossword before calling it quits. Then on Tuesday, I solved the whole damn thing. It took me, off and on, the entire day to complete, but complete it I did. And when I checked my answers against the answers provided in Wednesday’s paper, I found that I had only made one/two errors (I had “nudge” instead of “budge,” which also gave me “noors” rather than “boors”). It is now safe to say I am hooked.
Fortunately – or, perhaps, unfortunately – Hamilton subscribes to the New York Times. Numerous copies are made available in both of the major on-campus dining halls, Soper Commons and McEwan. So, while it may take me a little time to get this new addiction under control, at least I know that I can always get an easy fix. Damn you, Will Shortz.
