OP-ED: Each Day I Challenge My Mind Solving the NYT Mini Crossword. Can You Say the Same?

Oh! Sorry, didn’t see you there. I was too busy expanding my mental horizons with today’s edition of the New York Times crossword puzzle. Haha, don’t sneak up on me like that, fam!
Oh no — I’m not doing the full thing, no. That shit takes like, five hours, and I don’t have that kind of time. The mini is the way to go, dude.
Don’t tell me you’ve never attempted a New York Times mini? Lame-o, broski. Sheesh, you’re hardly worth my time then. Why don’t you go home and give your lexicon a much-needed sharpening before trying to speak to me.
What’s that? You think I’m pretentious and lame? I’d like to see you try to guess five letter words with nothing but a cryptic sentence fragment written by a disgruntled NYT intern to guide you. Yeah, that’s right.
Got something to say? Oops, couldn’t hear you over the sound of the cogs turning in my brain. And we’re chugging along… one way ticket to Smartsville, baby! Population: moi.
Aghh… my cerebrum is positively engorged with… the names of Greek deities… 2009 Oscar winners… ohh yeah, how cultured, how highbrow… haha… look out, dude!
