NYT Spelling Bee 11-17-20 final

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.

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).
