Wordle Bot Breakdown
After playing Wordle today, I jumped over to the Wordle Bot’s website to see how I did. I had a really lucky first guess, but I couldn’t quite nail it in two. The word “Louse” narrowed my options down to three. Lucky me! But then I was stuck between “guess,” “guest,” and “quest.” I picked “guest,” but I wish I’d gone for the more thrilling word, “quest.” Still, I’m happy with three guesses!
A fantastic day for me, your friendly writer! I scored 1 point for guessing in three and another for beating the Bot, who guessed in four. That’s 2 points! Woohoo!
A Bit About the Word “Quest”
The word “quest” has an interesting history. It began as the Old English word “cwest” or “cwist,” meaning “search” or “inquiry.” It later changed into a word for a heroic search, like a knight on a mission to find treasure or save someone.
