Share this

Welcome back to Wordle Wednesday! Every Wednesday before we get on to the Wordle, I dole out a new riddle, brain-teaser or logic puzzle just to keep things spicey.

So before we get to hints and clues for today’s Wordle, let’s take a wee diversion.

Today’s riddle, courtesy of my father who came up with this one himself:

Broad of branch and deep of root,

I wear no leaves and sport no fruit,

Though sometimes I may cast a nut.

Now ponder deeply, I am what?

I’ll share the answer tomorrow. If you have a guess you think might be the answer, shoot me a note on on Twitter or Facebook.

Alright, let’s do this Wordle!

How To Solve Today’s Word

The Hint: A friendly expression.

The Clue: This word ends in a vowel.

Wordle Bot Analysis

After each Wordle I solve I head over to the Wordle Bot homepage to see how my guessing game was.

I was pretty shocked when my guess—crime—opened with two green boxes and a yellow. As far as I could tell, only a handful of possible solutions remained. I just went with the most common word I could think of when I guessed smile and voila! presto! that was that! Huzzah!

Today’s Score

I really thought I was going to beat the Wordle Bot today, but we ended up tying at two guesses a pop. That’s two points for guessing in two but zero for the tie game. That’s okay!

Today’s Wordle Etymology

The word “smile” has its origins in Old English. It can be traced back to the Old English word “smilian,” which meant “to smile” or “to smirk.” The exact etymology of “smile” is not entirely clear, but it is believed to be related to the Proto-Germanic word “smilōną,” which also meant “to smile” or “to laugh.” This word is thought to have evolved from earlier Proto-Indo-European roots related to laughter or pleasant facial expressions.
