Book Ends

     One of my husband's more annoying/endearing qualities is that he's smarter than me in ways and quantities that approach infinity.  This is why I won't play left brain games with him, even though we met playing chess.  He's also done the crossword puzzle in ink as long as I've known him so his right brain isn't too shabby either. This weekend he was so sweet. He tossed a half done puzzle from the LA Times aside, looked at me and with no intended insult said,
     "You could finish this one."   Aaaaand yet he lives.   
     See if you can figure out the pattern. If you can't, don't feel bad.  I had to ask.  ( and no, I did not finish it.  Sir Brainsalot did. )

  1. Hahahaha! Tooo funny!

    Uh-yeah, the pattern is sooo obvious. I won't say cuz I don't wanna spoil it for everyone else....

  2. figures...go sit in the smart corner, missy

  3. this actually makes me mad.
    I hate cross word puzzles. and now you have gone and ruined my while weekend. heck.

  4. actually i don't get it...i meant to write that i was being sarcastic, but i got interrupted!

  5. me too, iam... i consider myself to be a geeeenius and can't stand them. He also does "evil" sudokus so something is clearly wrong with him.

    Les: the solutions is painfully easy (once you're told). Take the last word or part of the longer answers (24 across for example )and add the word "book" to the end of it.

    In theory, knowing that would help you solve the puzzle, but I have a better way of solving them. Let someone else do it.
