Drum roll, please, it’s TING.

Gather Wordless to hear a story of near failure and learn lessons if your goal is to avoid the same fate. Wordle #471 was not a complete success, but it was something I did manage to get.

My first mistake? I didn’t choose to use the best Wordle starting words recommended by my more experienced colleagues. I chose TRICE. It would have been great yesterday, but it was not quite right for today’s Wordle.

WordleBot says that this was a good result, with 47 possible solutions. But, if Marc McLaren had chosen STARE as his favorite, it would have left me with 27 options. SAINT would have kept it to just eight.

I decided to bring in the A’ in case of another vowel. I wanted to leave the correctly positioned ‘I” as it was, so I chose WAIST. It revealed that the correctly positioned ‘I,” ‘S,’ and’ T were correct but in the wrong place.

In a moment, I felt double-letter desperation. I thought of “SPITS.” I was relieved that one of the letters, ‘ Ss,’ was now green. This was a positive step in the elimination process.

Now, I knew the initial three letters were STI which narrows the issue — WordleBot claims only four possible solutions are starting from this position. Do you know what I mean? STIMY. STINK. STILL.

It was not STIMY or STINK. It was STILL. Fortunately, the correct N on the latter was eliminated STILL. I had a successful Wordle without any more goes.

Close call! Kelly Woo will be your safer friend for tomorrow’s Wordle.
