NYT Spelling Bee 11-2-20 final

Hoo boy! I got so caught up in everything from the woodworking projects to being preoccupied about tomorrow’s results that are now completely out of my hands because I voted that I had forgotten to blog. But I made it, so here I am.

I appreciate that today’s score was the first one in weeks that felt right. Not too long. Not too short.

Though that’s not to say it wasn’t without being tough.

But yesterday I missed mostly things I feel I was right to have missed.

Sure, I probably should have gotten ABOIL, AIOLI, DOLL, and ODDBALL.

BACILLI: A rod-shaped bacterium. Would be funnier if it were the shape of A-Rod. You know, because that’s so specific.
CABALA: This is just Kabbalah? That’s sad.
CALLALOO: Botany word! The large edible leaves of a tropical American plant used in Caribbean cooking.
CLOACA: Zoology word! A common cavity at the end of the digestive tract for the release of both excretory and genital products in vertebrates (except most mammals) and certain invertebrates.
CODICIL: An addition or supplement that explains, modifies, or revokes a will or part of one.

Today’s final score: 27 words for 134 points.
Genius minimum: 134 points.
First word: COUNT

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).
