NYT Spelling Bee 12-16-20 final

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.

Meatier misses

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.

This is an arum. Does it look like something else? Maybe!

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.

Today’s summary

Final score: 27 words for 136 points.
Genius minimum: 130 points.
First word: DELAY
Pangrams: HEATEDLY, DEATHLY
Tweets:

ALL DAY EYYDAY!
I’m just being honest.

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).
