Hello from Day 6 of the current California COVID Curfew!
I got all the way to genius from my phone from bed last night. So I continued from my computer today and thought I’d try for Queen Bee. I gave up on that but don’t know how far away I got.
Yesterday I missed CONCOCT, ONTO, TOUCAN, UNAPT
I don’t know these words that NYT Spelling Bee accepts.
CANNA: A tropical American plant with bright flowers and ornamental broad, flat leaves. Oh, right. I’ve missed canna lily before.
CANTATA: A medium-length narrative piece of music for voices with instrumental accompaniment, typically with solos, chorus, and orchestra.
CAPON: A castrated male chicken fattened for eating. Wait, what?
NATANT: Swimming or floating.
OCTANT: An arc of a circle equal to one eighth of its circumference, or the area enclosed by such an arc with two radii of the circle.
Today’s Spelling Bee had fewer glaring omissions.
Final score: 39 words for 183 points.
Genius minimum: 160 points.
First word: GUILED
Snubs: ILLEGIT. LEGIT is OK. ILLEGIT is not? Wack.
