Hello from Day 31 of the current California COVID constant curfew. The ICUs are at or beyond capacity, but isn’t this the perfect weather to barbecue?
(So it’s clear, the answer is no! Stay inside, please! Keep to yourselves so we can get through this thing!)
Yesterday I missed some annoying ones. One of those was ANNOY. Others were ATTABOY, BALLBOY, BATBOY, BLATANTLY, NANNY, NYLON, ONLY, and TATTY.
I missed all these -BOY words, but today there are so many -MAN words that aren’t in the word list.
LOBLOLLY: A pine tree of the southern US that has very long slender needles and is an important source of timber. I’ve missed this before, and I’ve forgotten it again already.
TALLBOY: A large can in which beer or another drink is sold, typically holding 16 or 25 fluid ounces. Oh, yes. Who hasn’t had one of these when just out of view of the starter? My next tee shot will be in the loblollies.
Final score: 27 words for 100 points.
Genius minimum: 93 points.
First word: NORMAL
Omitted mans: PANMAN, MAMMALMAN, MALLMAN, ROLLMAN, PLANMAN, PANAMAN
In other news, I got LLANO today!
