How many Americans go anywhere, any day of the year, without driving?

If I wanted to stretch things, I could say that the answer for the day before, PRIME, was related to Black Friday purchases delivered by Amazon - except that it wasn't Black Friday and Amazon don't sit around for the other 51 weeks, waiting for something to do.

This discussion could fit well into the "Precognition" thread as an example of people searching for significance in mere coincidence or, indeed, searching for coincidences that aren't really there.

As I said up-thread, you must have different topics than I do.

A day or two before that the word was "drive." I think 55 million Americans were expected to drive somewhere for Thanksgiving. I didn't write them all down, but noticed a shift to words that have extra meaning this week, making them somewhat memorable.

last Thursday (Thanksgiving): the word was "feast." That kind of topical.

Yes, but "topical lately" suggests more than a one-off coincidence.

I'm thinking about setting it to "Hard mode" - where you have to use any letters you've uncovered in future guesses. But that would eliminate the ability to use a line to put something with a totally new set of letters in (a throw away word to see if it lands on some other letters to use).

I do it every day. In all the time I've failed four times. I get a lot of fours and slightly more threes than fives, so my "bell curve* is skewed towards the better end. Mind you, an annoying six this morning, even though I had three greens on line 2.

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.
