I got to spend time with my sister tonight! She told me about a game that is about birds. I don’t remember the name of the game, but I probably will learn the name of the game by the end of the week. I miss a lot of bird names, but the birds Ezersky decides to include in the word list are, to her, disappointingly few.
Yesterday I missed IDEATE, IDEATED, ITTY, MEDIATE, MEDIATED, MEDITATE, MEDITATED, META, METADATA, TEATIME, TIDIED, and TIDY.
DEMIT: Resign from (an office or position)
DIMITY: A hard-wearing, sheer cotton fabric woven with raised stripes or checks.
TATAMI: A rush-covered straw mat forming a traditional Japanese floor covering. It’s been so long since this has been in the Spelling Bee that it was worth calling out again that I don’t know it.
Final score: 43 words for 146 points.
Genius minimum: 142 points.
First word: TEETHE.
