NYT Spelling Bee 3-23-21 final

The puzzles these past couple days have been long. SO many words. More than 80 words over the past two days just for the ones I found. Today was more than two score. I miss the short ones.


Meatier Misses

CAIMAN/CAYMAN: A semiaquatic reptile similar to the alligator but with a heavily armored belly, native to tropical America.

Kinda creepy that you can buy them for about as much as a portable table saw.

CANTATA: A medium-length narrative piece of music for voices with instrumental accompaniment, typically with solos, chorus, and orchestra.
CATMINT: weird word for catnip.
INCANT: Chant or intone.
MYNA: An Asian and Australasian starling that typically has dark plumage, gregarious behavior, and a loud call.

It just looks so impatient.

Today’s summary

Final score: 44 words for 240 points.
Genius minimum: 239 points.
First word: CALLA.
Pangram: CELIBATE.

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).
