Hello from Day 47 of the current California COVID constant curfew. What a day this has been! We’ll find out later what the results are from the Georgia elections, but that it’s even this close is amazing.
Yesterday I missed ACACIA, ACAI, CHAI, and CHIC.
ACACIA: A tree or shrub of warm climates that bears spikes or clusters of yellow or white flowers and is frequently thorny. I know I’ve missed this one before. Oh, yeah. The Lion King tree. One of these days I’ll get it.
CANID: A mammal of the dog family (Canidae).
CANNA: A tropical American plant with bright flowers and ornamental broad, flat leaves. OK so there’s calla lily and canna lily? All right. Noted.
DACHA: A country house or cottage in Russia, typically used as a second or vacation home. Chances Mitch McConnell has one of these? Some.
INDICA: A subspecies of the cannabis plant, Cannabis sativa indica, having a short stem and broad leaves and grown mainly for use in drugs. Good to know that weed variants are captured here but still no HORCHATA and no TORTA. That’s just rude not to have snacks.
INDICIA: formal Signs, indications, or distinguishing marks.
Update! NYT and WSJ have said that Warnock has sent Loeffler packing.
