Title: Sat., 4/18 Barry C. Silk
Post by: magus on April 19, 2015, 09:01:31 AM
THEME:   none, but few blocks
Shooter's protection   LENS CAP [not "that" kind of shooter]   
Opposite of apres   AVANT [oddly apres is acceptable, but not AVANT because the former is found often in our language]   
Offended outburst   THE NERVE [less an ouburst than an utterance]   
Hardly a warm reaction   BRR [I see BRR as an expression rather than a reaction, like a shiver --- maybe a distinction without a difference]

I liked this puzzle, and all of Barry's, for its challenge, but I find it more an achievement by the constructor than a desire to entertain.   
RATING: ;D ;D   
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
