Wordle 689 – 5/6
I had not played Wordle in ages when I was offered the chance to solve today’s puzzle in front of the world and accepted, falling upon my idiotic sword.
It’s not that Wordle is bad. I am just bad at Wordle. Like many millennials branded with a ridiculous “gifted child” label in the 1990s — convincing us that we had magical talents and that trying hard was unseemly — I dislike things I am not good at. This trait is acceptable in a six-year-old. It’s a grotesque trait in an adult, who agreed to review the Wordle.
My “strategy” is that of a chaotic and petulant goblin. SOARE is the first word I use, as I’ve read it to be a useful one. Then, my game degenerates into anarchy.
This time, SOARE provided me with two clues. However, I wasted two letters by using TOTAL and then CHINA.
Things began to fall apart after COMMA failed again. I stepped away to investigate the whereabouts of a supersize tiramisù I had ordered, because that is what goblins do. I dallied. I emptied the garbage. The tiramisù arrived, and I ate it. I couldn’t think of a word to fit. I almost gave up, but I don’t think Wordle critics can give up. (Can they?)
The puzzle took me 30 minutes to solve and I was running late for the meeting. This is likely because my brain has become jumbled from years of deadline-driven journalism and only works under pressure. COCOA? Seriously?
This Wordle is tempted to get one star because it has two letters repeated. But I’ll give it two stars, because even a goblin can be magnanimous.
Today’s word is COCOA, a noun. According to Webster’s New World College Dictionary, it refers to the powder made from ground, roasted cocoa seeds.
Today’s word is It is a little challenging due to its unusual letter patterns.
It is possible to find the answer using elimination strategies in six guesses. However, its vowel combination is unique.
