Wordle 300. If you find this letter, it means something bad has happened. I’ve probably been Wordle X’ed. I can feel it’s foreboding presence, lurking. Moving down the hall. Now, it’s at my door. I’m on my sixth guess and there are two possible ways for this to go. Shave or Shame.
As I posted my Wordle 299 post I realized that the next Wordle would be a noteworthy landmark. That’s a lot of Wordling. Sixty five days short of a year. For me it means I’ve done seventy-eight Wordles. This being the seventy-ninth.
Adieu my Swiss Army knife of vowels gave me a yellow A and E. Stare turned them green and added an S in the same hue. I was doing pretty dang well.
I thought Scale would be a good next guess. It wasn’t. Then there was Snake. Also, not a good guess.
Shape was a fairly good guess. Just a little late as it was number five. That’s when I began writing this. I still have yet to Wordle X for the second time. My current streak is thirty-four my previos was forty-three. Just yesterday I was thinking of how close I was getting to surpass my previous streak. Now, I have to wonder if V has returned or if I’m just being paranoid. In all honesty, I know Wordle is just a simple little game, but this has been a bit agonizing to write. To draw out the finale. I don’t want to Wordle X.
So, is it going to be a close Shave or a dang Shame?
I chuckled a little bit. To have Shame appear in a black box as I Wordle X’ed was humourously meta.
