November 3, ALOUD, 4/6

WITH BARELY ANY consideration, I launched into the empty grid with ORBIT. The O was yellow, solitary. ALONE. Green A, green L, green O. It was either ALOOF or ALOUD, as far as I could tell. I guessed ALOOF, planning to feel haughty if it went through. It didn't. ALOUD. I could have complained, but I kept it to myself. According to the WordleBot, it could also have been ALOHA, in which case I would have said something audible to the neighbors.
