Wordle 813 3/6
Looking to avoid a repeat of last week’s descent into hell, I made absolutely no changes to my Wordle strategy and hoped for the best. Call me stubborn, sure, but you can’t say I’m inconsistent.
U and O are both uncommon vowels, and it’s even rarer to see the two of them appear in a word together. My immediate thought was that the answer was probably OUTED or OUTER, and flipped a coin on which one I was going to guess. Not quite right, but in the ballpark (which, as a Mets fan, has been a depressing place this year).
I thought about words like ROUTE, but since I knew the U had to be in the second position, that definitely couldn’t be it. QUOTE felt like a bit of a longshot with the Q, but all the other letters seemed to line up in the right place, so it was worth a shot. I’m always happy with a three-guess solve, so I’ll give this puzzle four stars.
Today’s word is QUOTE. According to Webster’s New World College Dictionary, it’s a verb referring to reproduced words from a book, or a statement.
