NYT Crossword Puzzle 11-25-21 Complete (contains spoilers) #nytxw

This puzzle has a lot of oddly specifically relevant clues. I’ll expand upon that later.

I pulled out 1A Builder of a papery nest: WASP because wasps were building a nest under the eave of a neighboring building. I didn’t care much for that, but I wasn’t about to go knocking on doors like covid isn’t a thing. So I looked at Google maps and found a photo with the banner outside that advertised open units. I called the number only to find that the building had been sold and was no longer under the management whose number appeared on that banner. I set it aside for a few days to regroup and to be successful in other areas(?), and when I returned to the wasps issue, I did a Google search for newer listings in that building. I got through to the right people! I said either take away the wasps or charge them rent, but status quo is unacceptable. The nest stayed up for months, but activity stopped within a couple days of the call.

There’s a theme, but it’s difficult to write it out on the wp app.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
