Can You Spot…?
No, I can’t. But this lead-in to the puzzle begs the question why the LAT eschews titles six days a week. If there is room today, why not other days? Titles are part of the fun (that’s why I make them up for this space), and they help alert the solver to an otherwise covert theme. A choir may sing in it
SMOCK [they are not the same; smocks have sleeves]CHICAACA
[now not only are foreign words used, their abbreviations are fine with the LAT. I took 2.5 years of college Spanish but didn’t know this entry. If you change PRAM to PROM, you'd get OCA which is Italian for mouth. Bad, I know, but better than some random abbreviation.]
Three grins = Excellent: Loved it; Two grins = Good: Enjoyed it; One grin = Satisfactory: A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Unsatisfying: No fun
