Today’s “word” Word of the day #328 Answer and hint: Friday, May 13

48

Normally on a Friday I would set up a rendition of TGIF – thank goodness it’s Friday. Today, however, I’m not so sure. That’s because today is Friday the 13th.

Friday the 13th isn’t just a horror movie franchise, of course. Interestingly, the unlucky number 13 has similar origins to the names of the days of the week, in Norse folklore.

According to legend, 12 Norse gods were hosting a feast when the trickster god Loki showed up as the 13th guest. Loki tricked Höðr into shooting Balder with a mistletoe-tipped arrow and Balder – son of Odin and Frigg – died, plunging the world into darkness.

The origin of Friday the 13th being specifically an unlucky day is both more recent and a bit murkier. Fridays are considered unlucky in some cultures and the combination of an unlucky day and an unlucky number seems to be all there is to it.

And of course, of late, Jason Voorhees movies have cemented our scary notions of the day and its bad luck and ominousness.

Anyway. Hope your luck doesn’t run out with your Wordle streak. I’m here to help, as always. I actually got this one pretty quickly, although Wordle Bot thinks my first guess is always bad and wrong since I’m not guessing “crane” every time.

We’ll take a look!

Today Wordle #328 Hint and Answer

Friday the 13th isn’t the only scary thing you’re dealing with today, dear readers. There are also SPOILERS ahead! YOU MUST BEWARE!

First, a hint: It’s Friday and soon many people will be [the answer].

And the answer is . . . .

So my first guess came to mind because I recently wrote this article on Elon Musk Ring of Elden build, meaning the type of character he created and the stats and gear his character focuses on in the action-RPG. If this kind of thing interests you, read it.

It wasn’t a terrible first guess, as it certainly eliminated some running letters, but it wasn’t a very good guess either. I only have one ‘I’ and that in yellow, no less.

My second guess wasn’t much better. scorch got the ‘I’ in green and a yellow ‘S’. Frankly, I was quite shocked when tipsy ends up being the right word!

Going from what Wordle Bot informs me, my first guess was a “solid choice” and generally narrows down the possible solutions to 258. This only narrowed down the possible answers to 174 this time, which left me many possibilities.

Wordle Bot gave me an “excellent choice” for my second guess, which reduced 174 to just 10 possible solutions. For my third guess, Wordle Bot gave me perhaps the highest praise he’s ever had, noting, “Excellent choice and the right answer!” Good work.”

Thank you Wordle Bot. Maybe you’re not that fat after all.
