November 9, RAINY, 4/6

DESPITE THE CAT climbing on my desk more or less daily to mew at me to get me to pick up the glowing pointer, I had never thought to play LASER in the Wordle before this. The A was green, and the R was yellow. A good start, but the R seemed like it could go anywhere. I tried it in PARTY, and got a green Y, but the R stayed yellow. Next spot: HAIRY. It picked up a green I, with the R yellow yet again. There was only one place left for it to go: RAINY. No breakthroughs, just the steady drip, drip, drip of information soaking in.
