Holy smokes, it’s the first Saturday of February! It’s a snow day also and I’m distracted with house chores and basically being a homemaker, cooking up food, cleaning and organizing, all that jazz. I would have been a good stay-at-home-dad or “house husband” I suppose.
In any case, I’m late to this post so let’s skip the preamble and dive right in!
How To Solve Today’s Wordle
The Hint: Very small, and sometimes directly preceding soft.
The Clue: This Wordle ends with a vowel.
Every day I check Wordle Bot to see how I did. You can check your Wordles with Wordle Bot right here.
One of those days where you just don’t get a great starting word and it’s hard to come back from it. Bloat got me one yellow box and spine got me another, but it wasn’t until curio that I narrowed it down to just one remaining word: Micro for the win!
Competitive Wordle Score
I get no points for guessing in four and -1 for losing to the Bot who got it in three. Alas!
Today’s Wordle Etymology
The word ‘micro’ comes from the Greek prefix “mikro-“, which means “small.” It has been adopted into English and many other languages to denote something that is small in size or scale. This prefix is used in various scientific and general contexts to indicate a factor of one millionth (in measurements) or to signify something that is significantly smaller than the norm or standard size, such as “microorganism” (a very small organism), “microscope” (an instrument for viewing very small objects), and “microchip” (a small semiconductor used to perform logic and memory functions).
