"One with a nest egg" (HEN) - twigged
"Result of a good pitch" (SALE) - twigged (good one!)
"Not fast" (EAT) - did not twig (my favorite)
"Give a hand" (DEALIN) - did not twig
"Filled in some gaps" (CAULKED) - twigged
"Bugs" (NAGS) - did not twig
Sometimes you have to LEGO of your first TRIS or end up with a SADFACE.
The puzzle featured significantly fewer QMC's. I found "Pop around a lot?" (STAYATHOMEDAD) mildly amusing, whereas I liked "Mower handle?" (DEERE) quite a bit. The C/AP "Voluptuary" and HEDONIST is very good. Did TENUTO put anyone else in mind of Menudo, or is that just me?
