I gave it half an hour but got stuck hard in this one. It seems I haven’t gotten the hang of the WSJ crossword and what it’s asking me to do, so I called it at half an hour.
I got DIMINUTIVE as the answer to the clue WEE, which brings up how funny it is that there is such a long word for something so small.
Also NYT Thursday was easier than NYT Wednesday, but WSJ Thursday bizarre compared to WSJ Wednesday. I do not know if it’s a trend that continues.
