Hello from Day 51 of the current California COVID constant curfew. Today was quite the day! Another 737 went down, Kim Jong Un is singing from his Greatest Hits album about how he’s going to destroy America, and Republican senators are turning on the president.
Yesterday I missed DONEE, NODE, and ODEON as easier words.
AEON: A ridiculous way to spell EON.
HODAD: a nonsurfer who frequents surfing beaches and pretends to be a surfer. Wait, WHAT?! How did THIS make it in? Keep in mind that real words like TORTA, HORCHATA, AROAR, MOLAL, TALIT, MAZEL, MAZAL, and many others are conspicuously absent, but we have HODAD?
HOODOO: A run of bad luck associated with a particular person, group, or activity. Alternatively, a column or pinnacle of weathered rock. Pretty much the same.
Final score: 55 words for 184 points.
Genius minimum: 181 points.
First word: CALICO.
