It rained and hailed today in LA. And there was lightning. And there is lightning. For those across the country who know these elements well, you do not share my life. This is exciting. Meanwhile, there was a 2.something earthquake in Pacoima? It’s trending on twitter. No part of that event is of interest to me.
BUT THIS IS!
Yesterday I missed ADAMANT, DOODAD, NONRANDOM, RAMROD, and RAND.
MORDANT: (especially of humor) having or showing a sharp or critical quality; biting. Way better than being lesdant.
MONAD: Philosophy (in the philosophy of Leibniz) an indivisible and hence ultimately simple entity, such as an atom or a person. I hate this definition.
MONODRAMA: A dramatic piece for one performer. Oh, so a one-man show. I had thought it was a TV high school thing where everyone gets mononucleosis at the same time, and that’s how we know that Breck is double-timing Kesley with her arch-nemesis Trifanie.
RONDO: A musical form with a recurring leading theme, often found in the final movement of a sonata or concerto. Wait, is this just a round?
Final score: 26 words for 83 points.
Genius minimum: 64 points.
First word: ABANDON.
