    Very fun. Now I know what 24A
    24A BASShallow, as a relief
    means. And I really like the 25A
    25A ARRTeach's utterance, stereotypically
    clue in the context of a school-themed puzzle.

      25A
      25A ARRTeach's utterance, stereotypically
      went through a lot of changes, including some "Our Flag Means Death" references, before "oh wait, I know!"

      Shoot, I was trying to reveal a word and I clicked Reveal Puzzle. I thought it was very hard. I didn't get anything in the top third of the puzzle, across or down. Some of the clues seemed a bit arch. I did like some that got me to write in incorrect answers at first. 20D
      20D SESAMESecond word in a command
      was good. 1A
      1A LASAGNACafeteria food or a cat's food
      is fun but I never would have gotten it. Might need to be more specific about the cat. 10D
      10D DOONELast name in fiction and snacks
      is impossible to me; don't know an author or character of that name. 9D
      9D LADMany an English student
      too open-ended. But I did OK, had fun doing this puzzle.

        I appreciate the feedback! I'm still working out how to make fun clues that aren't also incredibly difficult.

        Also, what is 6D
        6D NATType of log one might learn about in school
        ? Don't get that one.

          A few really challenging clues, but everything made sense once I got it filled. A good one!
