I finished this one in six. It’s my first finish in six in 12 days. The last time I got a six was Friday, March 24, which was 11 days since the prior finish in six.
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!
