Six Across--Starts With an 'A'

My favorite parts of my work day make their grand appearance when my co-worker busts out her crossword puzzle book.

"Heather..." -said tenatively. "Who was Jacob's brother?"

"Esau. E-S-A-U."


And later... "French for water is--agua?"

"Eau. E-A-U." (I only know that because I lived in Eau Claire, WI, or Clear Water.)


"How's it spelled?"


"Dromedary..." I'm wracking my brain's on the tip of my tongue, and I feel dumb for not remembering.

"People who like too much drama?"

"No...camels!" Good timing, brain!

"It was Cain and Able, right?"

"Yup." Wow, this puzzle is biblical...

She gets a lot of them herself, but goodness does this game make me feel smart!

Okay, sometimes I Google....

Oooh, good point. I guess sweet would be dulce. Whoops.
