The curse has been reversed! I’m back to genius level!
Yesterday I missed some pretty good ones. One of those was a pangram: PROPAGANDA. It’s crazy that I hadn’t thought of propaganda. It’s all we see from the White House now (and for the last four years).
Other easy misses: ARDOR, ARGON, DOODAD, GONNA, GOOD, GROG, NONAGON, POND, PORNO, ROAN
Then there were the words I just didn’t think of: ANGORA, DOGNAP, DRAGOON, PARADROP, RONDO, ROOD
Of course the only ones that matter are the ones I am unfamiliar with:
AGORA: (in ancient Greece) a public open space used for assemblies and markets.
GORGON: Greek Mythology: Each of three sisters, Stheno, Euryale, and Medusa, with snakes for hair, who had the power to turn anyone who looked at them to stone. Medusa was killed by Perseus.
ORANG: SHORT FOR ORANGUTAN!!!!!!!!!!! Give me a break! Quick reminder that still no HORCHATA and no TORTA and no DOODOO.
PARADOR: Oh, right. A hotel in Spain owned and administered by the Spanish government. Still weird that this counts.
And for today’s return to genius…
