You’ve Bee-n Spelling?

If yes, you know that it’s more than a game….

This bee was alive November 2018 in Portland, Oregon. It’s little spirit still loves this memory I captured.

Seven random
letters start your
day. Make some words
and call it play.

“York” doesn’t count —
noun is proper.
“New” is too short —
“Times” can’t stop her!

Wonder why this
game is a “bee?”
It stings you when
you disagree!

So score“Genius!”
Take next hurdle:
find some time to
parse the Wordle!

NOTE: It seems as if the New York Times wants to capitalize on the way people play with words now that our dynamic human language system is ripe for the philosophy of definition!

The documentary “What is a Woman?” is the tip of whatever an iceberg is, and Spelling Bee and Wordle take players into the realms of discovery in terms of word meanings. We play, but sometimes it feels more like work.

So…girdle on, Wordlers, and pass up Genius to become the Queen of who it is you really want to Bee.
