December 20, THIRD, 4/6

THOUGHT ABOUT THE shopping situation and decided to use PANIC, for a yellow I. More vowels, or more consonants? I went with a slate of the latter, and SIGHT—the I was yellow again, and so were the H and T. So unless this was a weird weird, the I would go in the middle, and the H and the T would be a TH, either in front of it or behind it. I couldn't come up with any workable -ITH words, so THI- it was...THIEF? Three green, then two gray. THICK was out. What did that leave? THIRD. With better luck, I could have had it a round earlier.
