NYT Spelling Bee 9-26-20 final

I just cannot seem to push this one over the edge, so it looks like I’ll fall short of genius tonight.

I’m irritated more than ever by an omission: NEOLOGY. You know, making new words–the thing we all do when we play the NYT Spelling Bee. If enough of mine had worked tonight, I would have gotten to genius level. Too bad I’m not that convincing.

Yesterday’s misses by me were few.

COOLDOWN: I’ve just learned that this is a compound word.
ENOW: It means enough? This ranks a double-AYFKM on the reasonable-to-Will-Shortz scale.
LOCOWEED: A plant that is super bad times for farmers to the tune of $300 MILLION A YEAR. For animals, it starts out kinda just growing there that makes it worth chewing at, but then they develop a taste for it. Then it kills them. Bummer.
WEDDED: I’m going to get some grief from my fiancee for missing this one.

Likely final score for today: 44 words for 168 points. Genius minimum is 179.

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).
