Hello from Day 28 of the current California COVID constant curfew. And happy seventh night of Chanukah!
I decided to go for Queen Bee, but then that petered out. Wednesday nights are Amazon Watch Party Corner Gas nights ever since we finished Twin Peaks.
Yesterday I missed AURA, AURORA, POPPA, PUMA, ROAD, ROAR, and UPROAR.
I probably have missed all of these before, but clearly I’ve forgotten them.
ARUM: A North American and European plant that has arrow-shaped leaves and a broad leafy spathe enclosing a club-shaped spadix, and that bears bright red berries in late summer.
MARAUD: Roam in search of things to steal or people to attack. The thing a marauder does.
MARM: dated variant spelling of ma’am. Keep in mind that AROAR is a current word.
PARADROP: A descent or delivery by parachute.
PARAMOUR: archaic A lover, especially the illicit partner of a married person. “Archaic” before a definition makes me feel warm and fuzzy.
Final score: 27 words for 136 points.
Genius minimum: 130 points.
First word: DELAY
Pangrams: HEATEDLY, DEATHLY
