LAT Thu. 12/24 Elizabeth A. Long
« on: December 24, 2009, 08:22:00 AM »
Spare underwear   THONG [spare = meager]
Chop-chop   APACE [I like the symantic divergence]
Board for nails   EMERY [I was thinking wood shop stuff]
Hub near the Loop   OHARE [sounds like a lasso]
Lets the fur fly?   SHEDS [not "fights"]

The theme words with misspellings (extra vowels together) was tough for me.  When I see thee e's in a row in a grid, I know I'm on the wrong track.  Same is true with two i's and two a's.  So I was forced to reconsider what was already correct.  It was fun.

Aleph follower    BETH  [not sure why we get a letter from a foreign alphabet as a clue for a word that is a woman's name]
(NYET is common enough in our language to fit in.)

When will be the next time that a grid will feature four contiguous i's?
