Post by: magus on April 28, 2014, 08:42:20 AM
THEME:   first syllable of 5 phrases begins with S and is pronounced according to the vowel progression a,e,i,o,u, respectively
Letters from one who is short?   IOU   
As this theme is covert, it is unlikely to be noticed by many solvers.  At 64-Across we get "Alphabet series mystery writer…" for SUE GRAFTON.  Might the clue have been used to signal the theme?   
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
