C is for Cruciverbalist

Ok, I've decided to come out of the closet and announce loud and proud that I'm a cruciverbalist.  I know it sounds like someone who enjoys eating broccoli but hear me out.  When someone leaves behind a newspaper in a public place I will no longer tuck it under my coat hoping that no one saw me.  And, I'll no longer be the lady at the front of the line who tries to surreptitiously sneak a trashy magazine into my cart, instead I'll casually pick it up and put it right on top of my groceries.  I do have some grip on reality though and will most likely continue to wait until I'm in the exam room before ripping out a magazine page at my doctor's office.  It's an addiction I tell you, an obession, I can't help myself.

Still haven't figured it out?  Let me give you a hint; 1. Down - five letter word for a small thicket of trees.  "Oh no" you're thinking, "not one of those!"  Go ahead and scoff.  Next time you are stuck in a mile long traffic jam take a look around.  Most people's faces will show some degree of anger, irritation, boredom, even panic.  I however, will be the picture of serenity, happy for an excuse to work on my most recent crossword puzzle.  And in case you are wonderning, the answer to 1 Down is copse.

  1. That's sounds a complicated word but If that is what you are well, it's not a crime.
    Very interesting word....never heard of it before, but will remember in the future,

  2. oh, yeah... I've met you before! Every time I look into the mirror, I see you. :) I do the same thing, I just didn't know what I was called. Thanks for the education, and the very interesting post. Best regards to you, my fellow Cruciverbalist! (I am sure that you work them in ball point pen instead of pencil, too) Ruby.
