NYT Spelling Bee 11-22-20 final

Hello from the fourth night of the current California COVID curfew!

I decided to quit after getting to genius level today because I was happy to get where I got. A Y in the middle without an L certainly makes for a tougher spelling bee.

As I wrote my blog post yesterday–a thing I do usually when I finish the puzzle–I wrote about the BAOBAB tree. I realized only later that BAOBAB appeared two days in a row. So I missed it two days in a row. I also missed NABOB.

AEON: The dumb spelling of EON. And more chances to point out that AEON is fine, but AROAR is not fine.
JOJOBA: An oil extracted from the seeds of an American shrub, widely used in cosmetics. I have little doubt that I will forget this. Like I forget the BOABAB tree.

Final score: 18 words for 89 points.
Genius minimum: 88 points.
First word: ANNOY
Pangram: CACOPHONY
Last word: YAPPY
Missed opportunity:

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).
