Wordle 353 stumped me right off the hop by giving me a yellow D. It’s probably my least favorite letter to go solo yellow. It’s that lack of vowels that makes me despair so. Also, it doesn’t help that Wordle used double O’s for the second day in a row. Gloom followed by Flood, that just isn’t fair Wordle.
So after Adieu left me with that yellow D, I tried Chord. Both the O and D went green. Totally positive, but not all that helpful.
I took a break. After an hour or so, I played Blond. The L went green and I was still stumped.
After another hour or so, I figured it out. The answer was Flood.
