I often use a sacrifice word to eliminate words. I almost did, this time. Batch, match, patch... so I considered using bumpy. I do use a former answers list --which eliminated watch and catch.

🟨⬜⬜🟩⬜ TRUCE
⬜🟩🟩🟩🟩 HATCH (oh no….)
⬜🟩🟩🟩🟩 PATCH (am I feeling lucky?)
⬜🟩🟩🟩🟩 BATCH (nope)
🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 MATCH (and now I just ruined my overall average- ffs)

When it goes this way, I consider my score much higher because this “multiple options” is just crap. I’m 70 so I’ve earned the right to make my own damn rules! 🤣🤣🤣

AND, connections was diabolical. Only got green.

Have a great day everyone. Remember, the score is not the goal. The goal is to exercise your brain! Now I’m going to exercise my brain by thinking of every possible curse word for the New York Times.
