November 28, TEPID, 3/6

FIRST I THOUGHT of SLOTH, but that had already been an answer, so I tried CLOTH. Yellow T. TRAIN turned it green, with a green I as well. Now the word was on track. Was it one syllable, maybe with the T in a consonant pair and the I in a vowel pair? Or was it two syllables? The T couldn't go with an H or an R anymore, and the I would have to be part of an EI, rather than an IE. So THIEF was out. What would the two-syllable version look like? T-vowel-consonant-I-consonant. Regular old common E was still in play. T-E-consonant-I-consonant. TEPID. The game had barely heated up and it was over.
