Wordle 644 6/6

Every morning I take measure of my self-worth by playing Wordle. If I succeed in deducing the correct answer, the feeling is similar to not finding my name in the obituaries; I am free to go on with the rest of my day.

But if I fail to solve the puzzle, I consider myself not fit for proper society and unworthy of mass transit. I can sense the disdain in even my dog’s eyes.

At this point, you might be wondering whether my problems extend well beyond Wordle. My answer is: AGREE.

My complex Wordle tactics are modeled on the strategies employed by British codebreakers at Bletchley Park during World War II, so please don’t feel bad if you can’t keep up. Roughly speaking, it is:

First, I begin with a word containing three vowels.

Next, I select a second word with a fairly common consonant blend, such as CH, TH or GR.

Finally: Wing it.

All the while, there is the variable of my fevered mind at play, as evidenced in the below example.

I began with a three-vowel word: ASIDE. I followed up with a word containing a consonant blend: PERCH. I have no idea why I chose this word. No, I do not fish.

Now, with only two letters found — neither in its proper place — and with what little confidence I had slipping away, I typed in how I felt: LOWER.

For once, my poor self-esteem paid off: _O_ER.

I began to feel cocky, and so my fourth attempt was BOXER. A mistake. Sufficiently humbled, and with only two chances left, I felt like a GONER, and went with it. Another mistake.

Only one chance left. When this happens, and it often does, I try to imagine a mind-meld with the Wordle powers-that-be. Are they feeling devious (IONIC, anybody?)? Or are they feeling too kind (CLOTH)?

I decided on this day that they were civic-minded, and I chose what turned out to be the correct answer: VOTER.

“I got it!” I bragged to my dog, who just shook her head and looked away.

Today’s word is VOTER. According to Webster’s New World College Dictionary, it’s a noun that describes someone who has the right to choose between candidates or to decide on a proposal or a resolution — especially someone who actually votes.
