Hey, it’s Tuesday! Nothing really happens on Tuesdays. Tuesday is a day lost in time, buried among other richer days.
In fact, I’m feeling so unenthusiastic about today that I’m going to skip this part of the preamble entirely and go straight to the heart of the post.
Let’s do this Wordle!
How to solve today’s Wordle
Clue: This word has a double letter.
Wordle Bot analysis
After I finish Wordle, I always go to login Wordle Bot to see how I scored, both in terms of each individual guess and if I outsmarted the Bot or not.
I felt pretty good about today’s Wordle. Whale was a great guess, whittling my options down to just 14. From there I used a word that I knew would eliminate as many options as possible and hit on the best planet of all, pluto, which left me with only one remaining possible choice: latte for the win! Huzzah!
My score today: Alas, the Wordle Bot somehow managed to guess in just two today – a rare occurrence! This means I get 1 point for hitting three, but then immediately lose it from losing to the Bot. Total wash. Zero, zich, nada. That’s life!
(See the rules below).
Today’s Word Etymology (via ChatGPT)
The word “scarf” comes from the Old Norse word “skarfr”, which referred to a piece of cloth or band worn around the neck or head. This word later evolved into the Middle English word “scharf” or “scarf”, which continued to be used to refer to a piece of cloth worn around the neck. Over time, the meaning of the word expanded to include various types of long, narrow pieces of cloth or cloth, such as those used to cover or wrap objects, and the word “scarf” took on its modern meaning.
