Apologies for any inconvenience.

  1. 24:26 I don’t drink coffee, never been in a Starbucks. Thank goodness for the “down” words so I could learn to spell “Frappuccino” 🙂

  2. 19:11. I was pretty excited about finishing a Friday in under 20 mins, but then I saw this puzzle was constructed by a 15 year old along with his sister, a Harvard freshman. Ouch.
