Since there’s no Wall Street Journal Friday puzzle, I did the New York Times July 2020 special puzzle: National Drive-Thru Day. It was pretty easy and kinda fun. The fun part probably was that there was no mention of Will Shortz, so go Fred Piscop!
The clue for 39A “Get a _ _ _!” (call to an early driver) was one I hadn’t heard before. I was unaware of “GET A HORSE!” But for a while I had read it as call to an elderly driver, and I thought how terrible it was to tell an old person to get a hearse, and I questioned my spelling of hearse because it’s six letters long, and there was only space for five.
Look out for other special monthly puzzles I do to fill the gaps in regular days.
Have a great weekend!
