There was one clue I couldn't complete in last week's Split Decisions crossword puzzle by Fred Piscop.
It turned out that the missing word was: "smaze".
It's in the dictionary, alright.
But I've never heard it, in 57 years.
And the various spellchecking software on my various computers is dubious, and growls at me with little red underlining of this not-so-well-known word.
Perhaps it's new, and now I am on the bleeding edge.
At least on this beautiful Sunday morning the skies are blue and the air is clear and there's not a whiff of smaze to be found.
Happy Mothers Day!
