Hello from Day 48 of the current California COVID constant curfew. And holy crap what a day it’s been. Truly terrifying. This is not the America I know. I was taken by surprise that the Capitol was breached. Until this evening, I hadn’t watched Trump’s stream-of-consciousness incitement to violence. I feel like puking.
Yesterday I missed CIRRI, CLINIC, CYNIC, LION, LOIN, and NOIR.
COIN: Only to point out that there is a coin shortage.
CRYONIC: Relating to the practice or technique of deep-freezing the bodies of people who have just died, in the hope that scientific advances may allow them to be revived in the future. I don’t blame them for wanting to be woken up when all this is over.
RILL: A small stream.
ROILLY: (chiefly of water) muddy; turbulent.
Final score: 17 words for 81 points.
Genius minimum: 74 points.
First word: WHITTLE.
