Today’s Wordle #501 Hint, Clues And Answer For Wednesday, November 2nd


After a few run-ins with various colds and flus and COVIDs and who knows what else, my fitness journey has taken a bit of a hit. I am feeling more out-of-shape and lazy and fluffier than I have in a good long time. So that means it’s time to get back into the gym, start hitting the yoga classes and get out on the hiking trail with my dogs.

The trickiest part is getting over that initial hump where you just feel bad. You feel bad about how crappy you’re doing, about how much you let yourself go, about how all that motivation you used to have seemed to just evaporate. And you feel physically bad. Everything is harder, hurts more, you get winded much more quickly.

That hump is so rough because it’s easy to give up and hard to get started, and that’s where I’m at right now. I’m planning on focusing on good sleep (I am often under-slept) and consistency. The self-discipline is wobbly at first so just showing up and doing the work, even if you’re not at your best, is key to getting back into a good exercise regimen.

And a good exercise regimen often leads to a clearer and calmer mind, which in turn is really good for things like solving puzzles. Speaking of which . . . .

Today’s Wordle Solution — Spoiler Warning!

The Hint: Useful for extracting DNA when building a prehistoric theme park.

The Clue: This word starts with a vowel.

The Answer:

Wordle Bot and I both got this one on three. It was one of the easier I’ve seen in a while (certainly easier than yesterday’s!) though I got pretty lucky right from the start.

Ramen—which is what we had for dinner Monday, though not the cheap stuff, the good stuff—slashed the 73 possible choices I had after crate down to just one option. I couldn’t think of anything other than amber, and fortunately that was the answer!

Huzzah!

P.S. I think it was pretty obvious, but my clue is a reference to Jurassic Park. The original is still, hands-down, the best of any Jurassic movie including the Jurassic World films. Just can’t beat it!
