Hey look, it’s the first weekend of November! It’s actually been much warmer the last couple of days than it was over Halloween, so it’s been a bit puzzling. We’re tip-toeing ever closer toward winter, but the days are suddenly t-shirt weather again. Go figure.
Unfortunately, I won’t be enjoying them. There’s so much smoke in the air right now that going outside hurts my lungs and gives me a headache. Hopefully it passes soon as I’ve been itching to get the dogs out on a hike.
In any case, it’s Wordle time. Let’s do it!
How To Solve Today’s Word
The Hint: Craze.
The Clue: This word has a double letter in it.
Wordle Bot Analysis
After each Wordle I solve I head over to the Wordle Bot homepage to see how my guessing game was.
My opening guess, suave, was one I felt pretty slick about, but I guess it was not so hot after all! I got a yellow ‘A’ and according to Wordle Bot, 313 remaining solutions to choose from.
Broil cooked away 300 of those, and gave me a green ‘I’. From here, I knew I needed to get the ‘A’ into position so I picked a word that had two: mafia. I didn’t even think of mania or I might have chosen that instead. That would have gotten me today’s Wordle in just 3, but alas—I’ll just have to make due with four.
Just like yesterday, I get zero for guessing in four and zero for tying the Bot. Big fat zeroes all around.
Today’s Wordle Etymology
The word ‘mania’ comes from the Late Latin word “mania,” which means “insanity, madness,” and this was derived from the Greek “mania” meaning “madness, frenzy; enthusiasm, inspired frenzy; mad passion, fury,” from “mainesthai” meaning “to rage, to be mad.”
Going further back, it’s tied to the Proto-Indo-European root “*men-” which means “to think, to have one’s mind aroused or excited,” which could lead to the frenzy or madness associated with the word ‘mania’. It’s interesting to note that this root is also the source of other words related to the mind and mental activities, such as “mind,” “mental,” and “memento” in English.
