January 18, 2023, CHARD, 3/6
I SAW THE Ben Smith book galley on my desk and remembered that SMITH is also a non-proper noun. I played it and got four gray squares and a yellow H. HORDE kept the H yellow, adding a yellow R and D. That put the H somewhere on the interior, presumably in a combination. TH- and SH- were already out. Unless there was a DH- or RH- involved, the H and the RD were going to stay separate. So: CH- and -RD, and O was already out. CHARD. Last night's vegetable, as it happened. The grid served up a row of greens.
The Wordle Postgame Report will be posted semi-regularly on the website of the Indignity newsletter, and on Popula, which we encourage you to support. Thank you for reading!
