WSJ Spelling Bee 8-2-20 final

Wow. This one. Wow.

I was chugging along no problem, but the pangram eluded me. As I have been doing daily, I checked in with my sister (twitter.com/raablauren) to see how she’d been handling today’s puzzle.

She assured me that I could resolve my pangram issues, and she revealed that there are TWO of them.

Crap.

So I kept going and found the first one before finally passing out. I’d get the second in the morning.

Maybe I wouldn’t, but for sure there’d still be a way to get to genius level, right?

I couldn’t find that way and couldn’t find the other pangram. So I was stuck on awesome.

I looked and looked.

ICICLE, CLINIC. No help.

I thought I was stuck with how I had felt these past many days: INVINCIBLE.

After what seemed like unreasonable struggle, I realized that if there an invincible, shouldn’t there be a vincible?

There is.

Second pangram.

Genius level.

About raabidfun

I'm a guy living the #raabidfun lifestyle. I figured I would create a blog about crossword puzzles I do. The idea is to do the NYT crossword and the WSJ crossword daily as much as I can. That includes when I don't finish and have clearly failed. They can be difficult. Also I am not an attorney, and any legal analysis in this blog reflects my interpretation, which means it can be flawed and should not be relied upon for use in legal matters (especially against me).
