It’s always frustrating when you can’t seem to find the right combination of letters to solve the wordle, but it’s all the more satisfying when you finally do! That’s how I felt today when I finally solved the wordle in six guesses. The word was RELIC, and it took me a bit longer than usual to figure it out.
My first guess was GRIFT, and while two letters were correct (R and I), they were in the wrong place. I tried RISKY next, hoping to get lucky with the R in the right spot, but no such luck. My third guess, ROBIN, was also a bust.
By my fifth guess, I was feeling a bit discouraged, but I still had hope. I had managed to get three letters in the right place with REMIX (R, E, and I), but that was it. Finally, on my sixth guess, I got it right with RELIC.
It’s my first solve in six guesses since March 24th, and I was starting to worry that I might not get it today. But as they say, “if at first, you don’t succeed, try, try again!” And that’s exactly what I did. It’s my sixth solve in six guesses this year, which is a pretty good track record so far.
Last year, at this point, I had 17 solves in six guesses through the end of April, and I started in mid-January. It’s always interesting to see how your performance compares year-over-year. In any case, I’m feeling pretty good about today’s solve and ready to take on tomorrow’s challenge!
