NYT Spelling Bee 5-21-22 (contains spoilers)

I got so close to forgetting to do this. Maaaan. But doing it meant I saw that the hello wordl post from today had missed schedule! WordPress does that sometimes, and it’s really weird.

Yesterday I missed ACCURACY, ARRAY, CRANNY, and RUNNY.

Meatier Misses

ARCANA: Secrets or mysteries.

arcana (n.)

“hidden things, mysteries,” 1590s, a direct adoption of the Latin plural of arcanum “a secret, a mystery,” an important word in alchemy, from neuter of adjective arcanus “secret, hidden, private, concealed” (see arcane). Occasionally mistaken for a singular and pluralized as arcanas, because arcana is far more common than arcanum.

CURACY: The office, position, or work of a curate.
HARRY: Persistently carry out attacks on (an enemy or an enemy’s territory)

Today’s summary

Final score: 43 words for 196 points.
Genius minimum: 170 points.
First word: FOIBLE.

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).
