NYT Spelling Bee 3-6-21 final

You know that feeling when your beard itches and you know you should shave but figure that it’s better to start the next day having shaved but also feel like it might impact your sleep if you don’t do it before you go to bed? Yeah, that’s me right now.

Yesterday I missed ARCHAIC, ARMCHAIR, ARTHRITIC, ATTIC, CHITCHAT, CITRIC, TACT, and TRAMCAR.

Meatier Misses

AITCH: The letter H.
CATARRH: Excessive discharge or buildup of mucus in the nose or throat, associated with inflammation of the mucous membrane. I had thought this was a typo.

From Etyonline:

catarrh (n.)

“disease characterized by inflammation of, and discharge from, a mucous membrane; a cold in the head or chest,” late 14c., from Medieval Latin catarrus, from Late Latin catarrhus, from Greek katarrhous “a catarrh, a head cold,” literally “a flowing down,” earlier kata rrhoos, ultimately from kata “down” (see cata-) + rhein “to flow” (from PIE root *sreu- “to flow”). Related: Catarrhal; catarrhous.

Today’s summary

Final score: 22 words for 87 points.
Genius minimum: 87 points.
First word: OPTIC.
Pangram: TOOTHPICK.

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).
