After 836 days, I finally met a New York Times crossword puzzle I couldn’t solve. I got everything but the final isolated word, which was the name of an Egyptian pharaoh. When I finally gave up, pressed “reveal puzzle,” and saw the correct answer, it was a name I couldn’t have ever come up with. And since it was isolated from all the other puzzle answers, you had to know it. There was no way to guess. Looks like I’m starting a new streak with the next puzzle.
Here endeth my streak
