    Nice one! Definitely didn't find it too easy - I almost gave up a couple of times but glad I stuck with it!
    • Aaron constructor · 2022-02-18T23:07:56.216Z
      Thanks. I feel like I've improved at gauging the difficulty of my own puzzles but everyone's knowledge and life experience is different. Your easy Tuesday could be my tricky Thursday.
    • Duncan Lyle 🤓5:36 · 2022-02-18T22:59:00.448Z
      Great puzzle! And I have to say, I really liked the theme. 😉 I chuckled at 19D19DCoolest member of Green Day?[---], and I wouldn't say 37A37ALeave cake out on the counter, say[-----] was difficult per SE, but the "aha" definitely took a couple seconds and was a very fun clue.

        Thanks! I just started working through the contest submissions and now I feel bad for "taking" your theme. Definitely a bit eerie that we posted our puzzles around the same time.
        • Duncan Lyle 🤓5:36 · 2022-02-19T01:45:19.266Z
          Haha, I wouldn't say either of us "took" the other's theme at all! We just both had the same great idea. 😎
          • Aaron constructor · 2022-02-19T03:03:02.523Z
            Good way of putting it! As they say, great minds think alike. I always appreciate seeing how multiple people approach the same theme.

        Great grid art, great fill -- fantastic puzzle!
        • Aaron constructor · 2022-02-19T00:13:11.071Z
          Thanks! The grid art wasn't intentional actually! I just thought the theme would work well with L/R symmetry.

                1D1DGnasher in a mouth[-----] had me fooled, I thought it was TOOTH! Nice theme although I wish "heart" would have split in different ways.
