Hello from Day 35 of the current California COVID constant curfew. Did you hear that all the markets in DC are sold out of carbonated drinks? It’s true! People are burping their way through Lafayette Park saying, “Pardon me.”
Yesterday I missed the easy AMMO, ANON, KNOLL, KNOWN, and MONO.
KOAN: A paradoxical anecdote or riddle, used in Zen Buddhism to demonstrate the inadequacy of logical reasoning and to provoke enlightenment.
KOLA: A small evergreen African tree which is cultivated in the tropics for its seeds (cola nuts).
MAKO: A large fast-moving oceanic shark with a deep blue back and white underparts. Reread. It’s underparts, not underpants.
Final score: 26 words for 111 points.
Genius minimum: 103 points.
First word: MAMMON my new favorite NYTSB word. I don’t want to miss it again.
