Abandon spoilers ye who enter here. . .

I started with my usual somewhat thoughtless gay hope that a random monosyllable with no more than a vowel diphthong would get me in with a couple. But I gaped as the grey bloks bobbed up one by one, until the final:   GREEN!. Actually, the penultimate letter was GREEN. The ultima thule was another grey. So with my standard tactic of finding another word with another vowel and three or four alphabetic newcomers I ventured anew: And got greyballed.

I was now two words in, and one common vowel green. I faced a keyboard of few prospects. I tightened my sinews and went for a thrid word, one with NO previously posed letters. At a medium pace the squares filled: Grey, grey, grey, grey, pale yellow. Pale Yellow! Maybe I had a new possibility. A new hope, like a radiation free zone on our poisoned planet. But.... it was no vowel.

And so, with all vowels tried and y-ed I re-entered the fray. On the fourth 'down' I figured I had to re-position the consonant, and, a thing I had barely thought of, but now was compelled to venture, double the vowel. The empty squares became blocks... GREEN. GREY. YELLOW. GREEN! GREY. I had positioned two letters and established a double vowel. Common letters all, but at the completion of the fourth try there was new hope.

But only two tries left. I would have to find the place for the vowel and come up with two new cons. Could this happen. The yawning sixth try was only a couple of tries away.

And now there was nothing left but pure luck as my weakest link appeared - brain work! I had to think of likely words that could fill the places and spaces of my wordle hurdle. This could take hours, or....well over five minutes. Wee the double vowels something that could occur together. Or apart Coult there actually be three of the suckers? I wrestled with the conundrum for a minute. Then another minute. A minute passed in between.

I felt adrift in time, my only stability supplied by the mattress firmly under my spine. If only gravity could talk! Intelligently!
I thought of a word. A word that would fit. It would have the vowels, the one I had placed and the one at large. It included two new consonants. I tried fiercely for about two seconds to think of another word that would serve. I could not think of one. But had I tried enough?

I was out of patience. It HAD to be right. It was kind of a dirty word, but after all, we're playing with the New York Times here! Every parrot needs a cage liner...
So I tried this try. I wordled.
GREEN. But this was a known known green. GREEN! I had the second vowel placed!

GREYYYY!! My world went dark as the phone started to time out...A nuAmbing kind of numbness began to whelm. I was on a suspension bridge at mid span and the bottom was a kind of Squid-game glass that was cracking below my feet....time was not. As my breathing was stilled the other returns came in....

GREEN. and GREEN.
One letter and one try left.
One letter to rule them all?
My tactic is half brilliance. Half elimination. Had I eliminated enough to save myself in the last gasp? I went through the available letters. No. Way. In. Hell. But. Maybe. This. One.
There was one likely leftover. One symmetrical con.
I won't lie. I cried a little as I filled the blocks. I was seconds from failure or success. Which would it be? Almost nothing was riding on this press on the submit icon.
But there was some hope. Some fear of failure. Some doubt as to whether I could lie successfully to the folks at Starbucks...

GREEN.
GREEN.
......
GREEN!

Was it victory sublime? More a sweaty relief.

I will have to leave it here. I am so overcome with emotion, this is the high note for me to leave with.

Isn't that kind of cheating? While it's a bit of fun, it is hardly the most demanding of puzzles and normally takes no more than a couple of minutes. It seems a bit pointless if you remove the need to put a bit of thought into it.

I got it in three today.

Got it in one once. On Facebook, a friend posted his results, with the yellow and green squares. The guy had told everyone what his first and second word always were. Then I knew a few of the letters, when the squares were green, and when you get 3 or 4 letters, it's not difficult to figure the word out. I bitched about it, and after that, avoided looking at posts before I finished the day's Wordle. It really did take the fun out of it.

Early on I lost all my stats when I switched to the NYT. I was able to retrieve them all as my family had been competing and reporting their scores in our WhatsApp group every day. Since then I've kept a little piece of paper with 1 to 6 down the left-hand side, and every day I put a dot next to that day's score. It makes a nice visual bell-curve, sort of, though I'm not very tidy about it!

My stats show 6/110 solved in 6. I think that would be about right but my stats are a bit screwed. I played with more than one browser and experimented a little in my early days and didn't always use the same browser to keep accurate stats with.. These stats do show a solved in one that I've never achieved by honest means. I solved it on an other browser first but wanted to see what message (now forgotten) it gave for a right first time solutions.

A very rapid three today. This is in total contrast to last night, when Mrs Steve and I tackled Wordle after a couple of glasses of Nero d'Avola, not at all our usual approach.

I had my second failure since I last posted here. It was one where I recognised the same place I'd been once before (same letters correctly placed and 2 gaps to fill. I also remembered realising after my (correct) guess from there last time, I'd got lucky and there were numerous possibilities. This time, I decided to waste a word to reduce the words that would fit the pattern but it wasn't enough to save me on my 2 remaining guesses.

From there, it's been 4 or 5 on the days (I missed one or two) I've played it. Today was 4.
