NYT Spelling Bee 1-17-21 final

Hello from Day 59 of the current California COVID constant curfew. With just a few days left of the Trump presidency, when are the massive pardons going to drop? Remember that you can play Pardon Me! bingo.

Yesterday I missed KNEE and KNEEING.

Meatier Misses

KEPI: A French military cap with a flat top and horizontal brim.

The creepiest picture I could find.

KIPPA: another term for yarmulke. I have only seen this with an h at the end.
NANKEEN: A yellowish cotton cloth.
NAPKIN: A square piece of cloth or paper used at a meal to wipe the fingers or lips and to protect garments, or to serve food on. Now, I know what this is. Calah thinks I don’t. But I do. I have manners.

Today’s summary

Final score: 43 words for 149 points.
Genius minimum: 147 points.
First word: HATCH.
Pangram: POTLATCH.

Because a dreidel is a top.

About raabidfun

I'm a guy living the #raabidfun lifestyle. I figured I would create a blog about crossword puzzles I do. The idea is to do the NYT crossword and the WSJ crossword daily as much as I can. That includes when I don't finish and have clearly failed. They can be difficult. Also I am not an attorney, and any legal analysis in this blog reflects my interpretation, which means it can be flawed and should not be relied upon for use in legal matters (especially against me).
