Puzzle No. 31: "Rumpus" (by Brian Herrick)
Guest puz today from Brian Herrick, who's made a bunch of puzzles I've really enjoyed and, perhaps more importantly, is one of the kindest/most positive people on Crossword Twitter™ (give him a follow here for good puzzle vibes). Very excited to have him stop by!
From Brian: "A few months back, Matthew offered to host a puzzle of mine. It just so happened that I had a happy little puzzle that needed a home, and here we are!
This isn't the most challenging or creative or innovative puzzle. It's, I hope, a fun variation on a tried and true theme. I hope it gives you a few minutes of much needed distraction. I find crossword puzzles are perfect for that!
Thanks to Matthew for hosting and for alerting me to the ableism of one of my original pieces of fill. I removed it from this puzzle. My word list (and puzzles) will be better for it.
Happy (and successful) solving!
