Puzzle Notes

Hi friends: 

Francis Heaney has a 3.5/5 difficulty puzzle this week, titled "Couples Swap." I think you'll like it! And if you do, please either rate it at Crossword Fiend or send Francis two tickets to "Hamilton," or both.

By the way, there is one word in this grid (only one that I can spot, anyway) whose opposite has never appeared in a mainstream crossword, and rarely in any others, despite being both short and grid-friendly. Can you find it?

Talk to ya,

Ben and the AVCX crew [avxwords.com, @AVCXWord]
