Do The Math
There are a multitude of reasons as to why I'm grateful for stumbling into the crossword world, but one of the main ones is that I've met so many incredibly smart people who are willing to lean into (and frankly, enable) my chaos - I firmly believe in the beautiful, masterful execution of insanely dumb ideas and hope to sell you all on it eventually. I also hadn't realized how much I missed making silly stuff with my friends until I started collabing on puzzles.
As always, some thanks are in order: a huge thank you to Alex for reaching out and suggesting we do an acrostic collab (you can make your own here), and a huge thank you to Chris for the test solve! And a quick shoutout to the acrostic generator for producing some nasty fill - I see you, girl. Do your thing.
PS: Go check out the AVCX Kickstarter!
