Talking through yesterday’s Wordle #395

Just to alleviate your fears, this post is about yesterday’s wordle (Tuesday, 7/19) so it won’t spoil today’s game. Below I’ll explain what I was thinking as I made my guesses. Maybe this will be fun, maybe not! But heerrrre we go….


Choice #1. Everyone knows the first guess is 100% a shot in the dark. So I started with a word that was heavy on consonants and light on vowels. And now as I’m typing this, I realize this was a Wordle word a few weeks back. Doh!

Choice #2. I wanted to keep the “RA” together but wasn’t sure if I should move them to the first two blocks or not. I couldn’t really think of many words that started with “RA” so I moved them to the right instead.

Choice #3. OK, back to my original idea, using them in the first two blocks. Rabid is a common word, right? Speaking of which, I saw a sick raccoon once, I think it had rabies. Video is here.

Choice #4. I might as well buy property on the 4th row because I rarely solve the riddle before this. Keeping the “RA” together doesn’t seem to be the solution, so I gotta split them up. Do you ever type in letters, assume it’s not a real word and then hit ‘enter’? Of course, I did! *Eye roll* What the heck kind of word is “ACKER”??

Choice #5. Now I’m just angry. Oh wait. Of course.


And that’s how my Wordle experience went yesterday. Like I said, I live on the 4th row but I’ve been lucky a few times to get it in two, or a handful of times in 3. Check back each day at 1pm central for new posts! I think this Wordle explanation thing will become a recurring post, so check back each day for a new post.

Thanks for dropping in!
