Back to shorter puzzles after that behemoth yesterday. And today there were many that I wish were acceptable words but of course cannot be.
I missed a few yesterday that I probably would have found if it weren’t a thousand points to genius level. That list: ENTITY, ITTY, LENIENT, LENIENT, LENIENTLY, LIEN, NINETEEN, TIME, TIMELINE.
I probably would not have gotten: ILLY, LINEMEN, MIEN, MINIM, YETI(!)
LENITY: literary Kindness; gentleness.
LINTEL: One I’ve certainly missed before. A horizontal support of timber, stone, concrete, or steel across the top of a door or window.
MYELIN: Anatomy Physiology A mixture of proteins and phospholipids forming a whitish insulating sheath around many nerve fibers, increasing the speed at which impulses are conducted.
And for today:
Final score: 20 words for 100 points.
Genius minimum: 92 points.
First word: CACHE
Wishes: VANHALEN, CHACHACHA, HAHA, HEEHEE, HENCH <– There are henchmen but no hench? I disagree.
