Have something you wanna say? Got a question? Want to do a guest freestyle? Want to collaborate on a freestyle? Want to just say hello? Hit me up by email!

It’s funny the amount of people, both familiar and strange to me, who have directly inspired the entries in my grid. The funnier part is, with the exception of one person — my wife — they have no idea that something they said came out of their lips directly into my grid. 35-Across is the entry I’m talking about here — they said it, and some sort of light bulb went off in my head and I immediately went to work on it. Whenever someone says something that ends up in a grid, it’s not a certain type of phrase I’m consciously looking for, but more an odd feeling I get… almost like those words exited their mouth, went into my ear through a trap door, and wouldn’t get out unless they made their way into a grid.

As always, I’d like to know, folks… comment is welcome! Come say hello! What did you like? What could I do better?

Thanks as always to the test solvers for their input.

As always, share this link! Pass it around! New puzzle on Friday!
