As a detective, my first thought when reading the crossword clue ‘Can you dig it? Yes, you can!‘ was that it must refer to something that involves digging. My mind went to the world of gardening and agriculture, and I began to think of different types of soil and earth. Then, the phrase ‘dig it‘ made me think of the word ‘dig‘ and its various meanings. I pondered on the many different things one could dig for, and then it hit me; the answer to the riddle must be ‘DIRT‘! Dirt is what you typically dig in search of specific things like fossils, minerals, or treasures. It is also synonymous with the word earth, which can refer to soil or the planet we live on. The clue managed to link a colloquial phrase with a straightforward answer that needed a slight diversion to get to. It was a cleverly crafted riddle that required some creative thought to solve.
