Answer:  ILLADVISED

(Not a bad pun.  Reminds me a little of that one shingles medication commercial, where the guy – with shingles – is out at the driving range!  When you have the shingles as bad as that guy does, you have no business playing golf.  I had a guy who worked for me who had a bad case of shingles and he was out of work for a few weeks.  I’ve had one flare up of shingles, and so has my wife, but we were fortunate that they were constrained to a fairly small area, and were nowhere’s near as bad as the poor people you see in the commercials.

All of the clue words are old favorites.  A couple of the jumbles were new, but we’ve seen both “milti” and “sensul” in the past.  The answer letter layout was a beautiful jumble.  It’s a little unusual to have a form of the answer word in the clue/question, but not unheard of.  That’s a heck of a hat the one duffer is wearing!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
