Man endures dramatic Twitter breakup with ‘New York Times’ crossword puzzles
Say it ain’t so…
Breaking up is hard to do. But it’s even harder when you’re going through a break up with the New York Times Wordplay Twitter account.
When Twitter user Matt Negrin felt the New York Times crossword puzzles app was sending him some not-so-subtle messages, he tweeted about it.
And his tweet did not land on deaf ears.
What happened next is a breakup for the ages.
First, they iced each other out.
Then came that question we all know we shouldn’t ask, but always do…
And then, the ugly truth. Oh how the truth hurts.
But then you remember your common ground. And you just have to wonder, “Where did it all go wrong?”
And suddenly you’re remembering happier times…
But looking to the past is a slippery slope.
And then someone goes and says something that really hurts.
And someone else lashes back.
But just when it seems bleakest, a glimmer of hope.
And then, you remember what it’s all about.
And it’s not long before you’re feeling frisky.
Frisky for crosswords.
Because there’s one fact we can all agree on here.
You can pretty much guess what happens next…
Yep, that’s pretty much how it goes. Just remember to cherish what you have, you two. Solving is a many-splendored thing.
