Thursday, April 20 Solution and tip

Thursday, April 20 Solution and tip

Another day, another Wordle.

There’s a strange rhythm to my days lately. Writing a Wordle daily guide makes me feel the time pass more clearly. It’s Thursday again. I’m aware of it and aware of it in a way I never used to be. Here’s today’s Wordle on Thursday, April 21st, and next week I’ll be writing about Wordle on Thursday, April 28th.

Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow drag on in this petty rhythm from day to day, until the last syllable of recorded time; and all our pasts have enlightened fools on the path of dusty death.

So it goes. Mortality stares back at us, teeth bared and smiling, a macabre reminder of our time spent and our time left.

But I get lost in daydreams. We’re here to talk about Wordle, and we’re going to talk about Wordle.

Today’s Wordle #306 Answer and Tip

Before we proceed, I must warn you of spoilers. Spoilers ahead. Spoilers there! Spoilers await! Spoiler ambush! Spoilers galore! Spoilers spoilers spoilers!

And a tip!

What makes an apple brown.

And the answer is. . .

Oxide!

Wow, what a complicated word! This is one of the only (the only?) words I’ve seen in Wordle that actually includes the letter ‘X’. Very rare as far as the lyrics are concerned. I almost didn’t get this one, truth be told.

My first guess was actually pretty solid (and Wordle Bot agrees) giving me two of the three vowels I needed. Still, needing three vowels is rare, but a word like bye would have been better this time.

Hi it wasn’t a big guess, but I was kind of blanking out at this point and wanted to test the vowels in different boxes. scone it was better, though not much. At least now I was sure that the ‘O’ would be the initial letter, since words like canoe were not an option.

Obese it was a totally bad guess. Wordle Bot was quick to point this out. I just couldn’t think of anything with an ‘O’ in the first box and an ‘E’ in the final box, but I should have known better since Scone eliminated the ‘S’.

It took a lot of brainstorming to come up with the answer, despite it being the only word left as an option. who thinks oxide? It’s just a very random word! But I finally got there, and it’s okay, that end is okay.

Happy Thor Day, dear Wordlers!
