I'm a rising high school senior at Riverdale Country School in New York City. It's beyond an honor to have today's puzzle!

I'm not certain, but I'm pretty sure I thought of this theme on a Sunday night while I was sitting on the red chair in my living room trying not to do my homework, although, admittedly, that's how I come up with most of my puzzles. I sent this grid in with a bit of trepidation — since I know a hidden word theme is a tough sell these days — I was so happily surprised when the team told me this one was going to be a yes.

I want to thank the editing team, especially Wyna Liu and Tracy Bennett, for giving me kind and thoughtful feedback on my puzzles. Most of all, thank you to Andrew Kingsley for being the best cruciverbal partner-in-crime (and English teacher!) in potentially the history of cruciverbal partners-in-crime. Collaborating with him has made me the crossword constructor I am today, and for that, I am eternally grateful. Andrew and I have some cool stuff in the works, so hopefully, you'll see us under the bright lights sometime soon.

Happy solving!
