I love a feeling of accomplishment. If I can get the following done in the AM (except wednesdays) I feel like I can rule the world:
- drink a glass of water
- Do Wordle
- “meditate” for five minutes
- make the bed
These six things make or break how my day is going to go. And wordle is one of them.
I admit that I have a slight obsession with the game. It’s become my morning fix: find a five letter word, spend one or two minutes, figure out the word.
I freely admit that I do not always get the word. Sometimes I strike out, and I’ve had more than my share of Phew’s…
But do you know what’s odd?
I often get the “hard” words quicker than I get the “easy” ones.
How do I know this? Because I am a NY Times crossword subscriber, I get a weekly newsletter that says which word was hardest and which was easiest to solve based on the average turns it took people.
For example: egret/gawky/cacao I got in three tries. The average was 4.8ish.
But take an easy word like PRIZE, and it takes me six turns. I didn’t get LIVER because I kept rhyming…These are words most people got in three guesses…
Why does my brain work this way?!
And what does trice mean anyway? (FYI- I got that word somewhat easily, though I really didn’t know that was a word)
Do you wordle? What words have tripped you up, or which did you find easy? Do you have a favorite starting word?
