Judges: son for lad? :?:

I think the category was the actual answers to the first crossword puzzle, so I don’t think alternatives would be acceptable.
So this is a "Guess the random word we're thinking of" category? Very bad form if so. :x
Yeah, I was surprised they didn’t at least give the first letter on that clue. Who is going to know exactly what the first ever crossword puzzle looked like? Every clue should have included additional info that could only lead to one plausible answer.
I'm not necessarily disagreeing with this statement, but "lad" seems more appropriate for a century-old crossword puzzle. After all, how often do you hear a young boy referred to as a "lad"?
Literally, a son is not always a boy. A lad is always a boy. Fits the clue exactly.

I was pretty sure "lunch breaks" were mandated by governments by the 1940s. (I may have been a bit naive, since some states still don't require them... :roll:) "Lunch hours," probably not, but the phrase extends the time, not the concept. So while I thought of the latter first, I quickly moved on to "coffee break." I could believe that was a novel phrase and concept that Time might comment on. If the clue had specified England, sure, "tea time" would be a good guess...

Yeah I’ve never heard of story telling coach either.
Nor I, but I guess that's why some people get rich and some don't.
I get the sense it's sort of a motivational speaker for individuals, especially in business. Not so much to get a better slot on The Moth.

Strangely my wife and I both thought of the contract negotiation angle and both said "cooling off." I didn't like it at all, but that I was all I could think of.
I have no idea what that has to do with food and drink.
I'd rather cuddle then have sex. If you're into grammar, you'll understand.

The correction of "metal" to "heavy metal" was bizarre. The latter term is rarely used anymore.
How to start a fight in a room full of music nerds:
'Metal and Heavy Metal [or Rock/Rock and Roll; Country/Country & Western; Punk/Punk Rock; Alternative/Alternative Rock/Alt Rock...] are different names for the same thing!'
No, the real way to start that fight among music nerds is to insist that the term classical refers only to the classical period.

Another for lunch hour. Thought “hour” was the key to unlocking it. Not sure how you would favor coffee break (which I didn’t consider). Alas.

I guess getting a lunch break was already on the books prior to WWII.
