NYT Spelling Bee 3-2-21 final

It’s the second day of March! I am relieved that today’s spelling bee is a short one. So much better than the prior one that was way too long. And on the topic of too long, it’s going to pour tomorrow here in LA. For a dozen hours starting at about 10am, it’s supposed to rain more than a quarter of an inch. The majority of that is supposed to come down before 4pm.

Yesterday I missed ones I’ve missed a thousand times: ACACIA, ACAI, CANNA, COACT, COACTION, COCCI, and TOCCATA. I also missed CACTI, CANTINA, CIAO, CONTACT, COTTON, and NIACIN.

Meatier Misses

CANTATA: A medium-length narrative piece of music for voices with instrumental accompaniment, typically with solos, chorus, and orchestra.
CATATONIA: Abnormality of movement and behavior arising from a disturbed mental state (typically schizophrenia). It may involve repetitive or purposeless overactivity, or catalepsy, resistance to passive movement, and negativism.
TANNIC: Relating to tannin.
TINCT: abbreviation Tincture.

Today’s summary

Final score: 22 words for 78 points.
Genius minimum: 76 points.
First word: GLEEFUL.
Pangram: VENGEFUL.

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).
