I can get irritated and/or frustrated with narrowly themed events. I like to think of a puzzle hunt as a multi-course meal (appetizer, soup, salad, bread fillers, main dishes, dessert, etc.), and even though I'm grateful for the food, I'm not going to be particularly happy with smoked salmon, salmon salad, salmon soup, baked salmon fillet, and salmon mousse for a meal.

Well, I'll have a slice without so much salmon in it.

Well, there's salmon, egg, sausage, and salmon; that's not got much salmon in it.
