OK, not my first idea for the meta. Take a breath. Look for evidence. And I’m on the beach. The cabana boy's cousin is a pitcher for the Rays, who just beat the Yankees 14 to O. He’s offering free drinks to all muggles for the next 6 hours.

Done and dusted … I think. Confidence at 90% level, and that’s good enough.

It's a wonderful summer for metas. And for these phlox on the west side of my house!

Good luck, fellow Muggles! I'm happy to give nudges, but only if you're still stuck on Sunday. Just send me a PM and tell me what you've tried so far.
