    Nice one Taylor! I struggled but still enjoyed it!

      Happy to hear that! Another attempt at a Fri/Sat NYT style puzzle. Glad you made it through!

      MINIMS
      19D MINIMSMeasurements for drops of water
      was my last word filled; luckily, I have taught math for medical assistants and we talked briefly about some archaic units of measure. 😃

        Nice! yeah that bit of fill threw me off, I had never heard of it.. but I felt like everything surrounding it was gettable enough so I kept it in.

        Hard one! Liked a lot of the long fill. Re: minim, as a musician I know the term in that context (it's a Britishism for a half note) so I put it in on a guess it could mean something else too.

          Thanks! I thought about clueing MINIMS
          19D MINIMSMeasurements for drops of water
          in the musical sense, maybe that would have been the better option!
