Cry It Out

Obviously, I'm sleep deprived and my brain has turned to mush. The clue in this morning's crossword puzzle read:

10 C.I.O.'s partner

I thought Ferber? Weissbluth? It took a shockingly long time to figure out that the answer was AFL.

I still only THINK that I have it...geez, that's tough, and the reason why the only crossword I ever do can be found in the back of the flight magazines.

At least you got it eventually. I'm afraid that I never would have.

Huh? lol I am just as mushy mommy brained as you because cry it out is the first thing I thought of when I saw that too.

That's so funny. I had to google it. And forgave myself because I'm a Canadian. Probably still no excuse.

Also googling. Also Canadian. (But unlike Sage, I'm going to insist that that's a perfectly good excuse. American acronyms are my crossword pet peeve anyhow.)
