Today, I must be brief with our Wordle preamble. We’re on a short camping trip for my daughter’s 16th birthday, which means I’m quite busy and in need of some good old-fashioned nature and exploration.
I think the most excited among us are the dogs, who always seem baffled why we’d choose to live in a house when we could just be out in the woods all the time. So with out further adieu . . . .
Let’s do this Wordle!
How To Solve Today’s Wordle
The Hint: These people are gonna do the thing they are, you just can’t let them get to you.
The Clue: This word begins and ends with a consonant.
Wordle Bot Analysis
Well, crate was a very good opening guess, though I wish some of those yellow boxes had been green! Still, it left me with just 21 words to choose from. I decided to move around the letters a bit, and the juggling was decent enough. I was feeling like alter might be the answer, but instead it gave me three green boxes and left me with just 6 words to choose from.
At this point, I probably should have guessed something that would have reduced the field of available letters more, but I was in a hurry and guessed water (a crucial item on any camping trip!) which left me with five. I didn’t know I had so many words left, and luckily my next guess was the Wordle: hater!
Today’s Score: I tied with the Bot, which means zero for tying and zero for guessing in four for a grand total of 0 points. Huzzah?
Today’s Wordle Etymology
The term “hater” originated from the word “hate,” which has its roots in Old English. The Old English word “hatian” meant “to hate” or “to be hostile toward.” Over time, the term evolved and eventually gave rise to the noun “hater” to describe a person who harbors intense dislike or animosity towards someone or something.
The term gained popularity in the late 20th century and became more prevalent in the context of pop culture and social media. It is often used to label individuals who express strong negative opinions, criticism, or hostility towards a particular person, group, or idea. In this context, “hater” refers to someone who actively seeks to belittle, disparage, or undermine others.
The term “hater” has become part of colloquial language, especially in online communities and discussions, where it is often used to dismiss or invalidate someone’s negative opinions or criticisms. However, it is important to note that the term can also be used in a derogatory manner to shut down legitimate disagreements or differing viewpoints.
