Well, it’s official. I have COVID-19. My daughter tested positive earlier this week and has been under the weather quite a bit. I started to feel bad and tested only to get a negative back. I retested yesterday as I was feeling so much worse and because it seemed unlikely we would have two separate bugs, and got the positive. My son also tested positive later that day, so we’re all just the luckiest of the lucky campers.
Still, it could be worse. It feels like a nasty cold making even small tasks like typing this post or my review of Obi-Wan Kenobis 5th episode – quite challenging. And yes, I cough a lot and the constant headaches are no fun. But it’s usually like a bad cold. I have been vaccinated three times and these later strains tend to be much less potent than earlier coronavirus strains so getting it later is lucky (although I still suspect I had it in early 2020 when I was sick for almost two months).
Ironically, the coronavirus king himself, Dr. Fauci, COVID-19 at the same time as me. I call shenanigans. It’s a conspiracy theory!
Anyway, enough about my trials and tribulations. We’re here for Wordle. So let’s take a look at today’s Wordle, shall we?
Wordle #362 Today’s Hint & Answer
First of all, today’s hint: how is a kitchen like a concert hall?
And the answer is. † † †
I admit, the hint was pretty tough today. Maybe my illness has made me a little less generous, a little more erratic. But one apron you will find it in a kitchen as well as in a concert hall or theater. In a kitchen, it is a piece of clothing that you wear to protect your clothes from flour and tomato sauce and so on. In a theater or concert hall, the apron is a portion of the stage floor that projects into or into the auditorium.
Of course, there are probably other things you can find in a kitchen and a concert hall. But this is a pretty simple word, so I didn’t want to give it away too easily in the hint.
My guesses ended up being pretty good. viral—which I used in honor of the coronavirus that currently has me in its clutches – normally it only limits the possible solutions to 143, but this time I was lucky with 29. Arrow possible remaining solutions reduced to just 1 – although Wordle Bot helpfully informed me that using pace in this situation 76% of the time is better. Not this time, bot!
And yes, my last guess was the only one left and after some brainstorming and going through the remaining letters, I came across apron fairly quickly. Now I’m going to lie down. Happy Thursday and stay safe and healthy!
