In these trying times, perhaps soothe your anxiety with a hard puzzle? Maybe?
I’m hypercompetitive, as you all know. I placed fourth at ACPT last year, and even though I know that the absence of a couple of key players had something to do with that, it’s REALLY hard not to dream of the podium now that I’ve come so close. It almost hurts physically to think of missing ACPT for the first time in 19 years, but on the other hand my husband has asthma and does not do well with respiratory illnesses. I am keeping a close eye on the COVID-19 situation and will make a late-in-the-game decision on whether to come or not.
Cross your fingers, guys. This sucks. But enjoy the puzzle!
