NYT Spelling Bee 7-15-21 final

There are some places that are worth going. There are some places that aren’t. Before COVID, Calah and I went to EP & LP for a birthday party. Awful. Really, really bad. Then there’s Mama Shelter. Way better than EP & LP. It’s trendy with a long line, but the people who work there are as good as the prices are high. Which is to say very.

Yesterday I missed: DEED, DEEDED, DEFIED, DEIFIED, DITTO, DOXX (THOUGH I FOUND DOXXED AND DOXED), FIFED, FITTED, FOODIE, FOXED, TIDITED, TOED, TOOTED, and TOTED.

Meatier Misses

FETID: Smelling extremely unpleasant.

Etymology time!

fetid (adj.)

early 15c., from Latin fetidus (commonly, but incorrectly, foetidus) “stinking,” from fetere “have a bad smell, stink.” This is perhaps connected with fimus “dung,” or with fumus “smoke.”

Today’s summary

Final score: 42 words for 214 points.
Genius minimum: 210 points.
First word: INTELLECT.

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).
