All together now - inhale, exhale, OM, OM, OM

This weeks contest is titled Line of Work by Mike Shenk

The answer to this week's contest crossword is an occupation.

Maybe neatness expert like Marie Kondo

Stumped there for a couple minutes, but then there it was. I am on shore. I will have a bourbon and ginger beer. I will make it myself. I will drink it myself over a Zoom happy hour. Cheers, all!

Love it! On St. Patrick's Day at about 3:30 EST, I had an idea for all my Facebook friends to join me in a celebratory/"missing you" shot of Jamesons at 5 PM... no other advance notice -- that was well before we were all forced to become Zoom-savvy -- and it spread, and spread, and spread (not all exponential growths are bad). Anyway, at 5 PM, tons of people posted their well wishes, love, peace, stay healthy, etc., and videos and photos of them raising the glass. That was pretty cool. Of course some people didn't get the word until later, so I was forced to drink another shot. Or two. Maybe more; it's kind of a blur.

Solved! Very clever, Mike. Now I can start making our go-to quarantine supper of salmon with roasted potatoes, carrots and asparagus.
Good luck, fellow Muggles!
