Crossword Puzzles

Shannon | Oct 31, 2017

There was a man on my 2-hour plane ride that spent the duration of the flight solving crossword puzzles. He displayed such diligence and focus, and it was obvious by the speediness in which he filled in the blanks that these were not his first puzzles to complete. I observed as he read the DOWN […]
