As the deadline drew near I was like, “OMG, what happened to one of our puzzle VIPs? May he R.I.P.?” But all is well. Our OG puzzler was just sent into a WTF spiral and needed a little CPR (challenging puzzle reassurance). We’re monitoring his BP, have him hooked up to an IV, and he’ll soon be enjoying a little QT at the EBDBBnB.
