This quote is from People Magazine this week: "Drunk people solve some creative puzzles more easily."
Now I know what I'm doing wrong! I'm trying to solve puzzles while I'm sober!
The note did suggest that one drink should do it, a six-pack would not. Take it easy when solving puzzles.
It also isn't clear which puzzles one might solve more easily. Is Sudoku a creative puzzle? If so, perhaps you aren't actually solving it but you think you are. You've filled in all of the numbers and think you are girl genius, but you're really a dumbass.
