Thanks for Friday, folks! Not only is the work week almost over, it’s double XP for Competitive Wordle players. You get double the points if you do well and lose twice as many if you do badly. As with most things in life, you take the good with the bad.
Anyway, the weekend is upon us and it’s a busy one for me. I have at least two movies to watch and report on. Christopher Nolan Oppenheimer and Greta Gerwig Barbie, both reviews are going well. And yet I must go to the new Indiana Jones, so maybe I’ll get that one in too, time permitting.
Anyway, let’s do this Wordle!
How to Solve Today’s Word
The Tip: Big, stout.
The Lean: This word starts with a consonant.
Wordle Bot Analysis
Not a terrible guessing game today although it still took me four to get the Wordle.
I started with during, which I came up with while typing. I wanted a ‘W’ word. I felt that was a good place to start, and even though I didn’t get many boxes on Guess #1, I only had 59 words left.
From here, adult he ruled out a few more letters and ‘U’ popped down in yellow, where it would still be for guess #3, scrub, leave me with only one word left: bales. I guess scrubby because I wanted to eliminate as many possible options as I could on that guess and I knew I was curly and despicable and so on. It did the trick!
I was expecting a wash today, or even a loss, but Wordle Bot guessed in five – which is very rare! That means zero points for guessing in four but 1 point for beating the bot. Huzzah!
The term “burly” first appeared in Middle English around the 14th century and was originally spelled “birl,” meaning strong, strong, or stoutly built. The word probably comes from the Old English word “byrlic,” which meant “noble” or “excellent,” indicating strength and worth.
Over time, the spelling of the word changed to “burly,” and it kept its original meaning of strong, strong, and strong. It is often used to describe a person who is large and muscular, usually with a large built body.
