Choices (Meta)

· By benchen71 · Published 13 days ago

Meta Prompt: The answer to the meta is a Harry Styles song
I think this one might be tricky, but hopefully still doable. I've toned down the chatty clues (mostly!) in favour of shorter, pithier ones. In life, we all face choices of various kinds. I trust that you will be able to navigate the choices in this puzzle and arrive at the meta answer, the title of a Harry Styles song.

    A challenge and a lot of fun.
    • Hector 5s · 13 days ago
      I guess "Near" means "With"? How does "Treat" mean Cove or Shout? Or am I not following the mechanism?
      • benchen71 constructor · 13 days ago
        In Australian English, to shout someone is to treat them. ie. "What'll you have, it's my shout."
      • Mike D 3s · 13 days ago
        Great puzzle and a fun / tricky meta!
        • lbray53 3s · 12 days ago
          Fun!
          • Laura M 🤓1:10 · 12 days ago
            Fun! My actual solve time was about 30x slower than my submitted time, since I completed the puzzle in .puz form before coming here and retyping it. Took me a minute to understand 1A
            1A BAYReward or Shout or Cove
            but this usage seems familiar from British TV.
