With less than an hour to spare, I got there! Final was 39 words for 159 points. The last words for me were CLINICIAN and then finally LILAC.
In other news, I killed a mosquito that had landed on my arm, but it was too late. I know what its last meal was. Suspected pre-swat and then confirmed in the squish. How’s that for a way to end a weekend of 90+ and humid?
