Hello from Day 61 of the current California COVID constant curfew! Trump is the opposite of the original Pokémon. In case you’re unfamiliar with what I mean, there were 151 original Pokémon, and you were supposed to catch ’em all. But Trump granted clemency and released almost as many people as the Pokémon we’re supposed to catch.
Yesterday I missed BEET, BIOTIC, CLOT, COOTIE, ECLECTIC, LICIT, LILT, and OBIT.
BIBELOT: A small, decorative ornament or trinket.
BOOTEE: A soft shoe, typically a knitted one worn by a baby. A bootie by any other name.
COLLET: A segmented band or sleeve put around a shaft or spindle and tightened so as to grip it.
OCOTILLO: A spiny scarlet-flowered desert shrub of the southwestern US and Mexico, which is sometimes planted as a hedge.
TOILE: An early version of a finished garment made up in cheap material so that the design can be tested and perfected.
Final score: 27 words for 121 points.
Genius minimum: 117 points.
First word: BIFF.
