As a detective, when presented with the crossword clue ‘Consider something to be’, I knew I had to think outside the box to solve this mystery. I couldn’t help but think of words like ‘believe’ or ‘perceive’ at the start. However, as I looked down the list of options, ‘DEEMIT’ caught my eye. I immediately recognized the word as a combination of ‘deem’, meaning to judge or consider, and ‘it’ which suggested acting on that judgement. With a sense of excitement and certainty, I filled in the squares with the letters D-E-E-M-I-T, feeling exhilarated by my ability to put the pieces together. It was a fantastic feeling to solve the puzzle, and I knew without a doubt that my answer was correct. That’s the thrill of being a detective – using logic and a keen eye to solve even the most elusive of clues.
