I didn’t get to genius tonight. I gave up, which you know by now is rare for me. Today I happened upon a plant. I’ll share a picture later.
Yesterday I missed CALLOW, CANAL, CANCEL, COLONEL, CONCEAL, LOCO, and NONLOCAL.
COLCANNON: An Irish and Scottish dish of cabbage and potatoes boiled and pounded.
COLLEEN: An Irish term for a girl or young woman.
COWL: A large loose hood, especially one forming part of a monk’s habit.
WALE: A ridge on a textured woven fabric such as corduroy.
Oh! Remember that post from the other day? WEAL and WALE come from the same thing.
