Look, it’s the last day of March already! There will not be another March in 2023 again. This is it. This is the end. Only nine months left of the year. Soon, it will be summer.
I can have that. This weekend is supposed to be warm (and by warm I mean the low 50s’) and that means a lot of melting. I still have a lot of snow in my front and back yard, and I’m ready for spring to spring up and give us a warm hug.
It’s Wordle Friday which means if you’re playing competitively you get double XP for every win – or loss – you get today. You can go to the bottom of this post for the scoring rules.
In fifty days, we’ll be at Wordle #700 – three hundred short of Wordle #1,000, which will be reached in less than a year. Crazy to think.
Well, let’s do the last Word of March.

Tips: All things. All places. All at once.
Note: This word has two letters.
Every day after I’m done with my Wordle I go to the New York Times’ Wordle Bot website to review my guessing game. That’s where I get the picture above every day. The Wordle Bot takes every guess and shows you how many words you’ve removed (or, rather, how many are left). It measures your performance and gives suggestions on what you could have done better. It helps you improve your game, and I always play against the Bot to see if I can challenge it. Well, let’s see!
Word #650 Analysis
I thought diary as an opening idea for a while but I haven’t tried it yet (unless I forget to use it on the previous Wordle, which is possible). I like it because it has two vowels plus a Y in the fifth position, which is the most common. This was the case today, with both ‘R’ and ‘Y’ showing up in green.
From here, I want to imagine all the new letters and hope to find a green vowel or two. I thought about it question which had a ‘U’ and an ‘E’ but it would have left the green boxes in their place and it sounded less, so I came up with the first word I could think of with two vowels that didn’t match my alphabet. first thought. I think I’ve been thinking about elections lately votes it seemed like a good choice. Of course, now I had two yellow boxes and since I already knew where two letters went, I only had three boxes to choose from. The ‘V’ was supposed to go in the second or third position and with a quick look I quickly realized each one it was my only option (or the only one I could think of).
Yes, each one it was the answer! Huzzah!
Since we’re playing Double XP on Friday, this is a sweet win for me. I beat the Wordle Bottle in one guess which gives me a point and I got it in three which gives me another point. Double that and I get 4 Wordle points today. Not too shabby!
Etymology Study of ChatGPT
I asked AI chat bot ChatGPT to explain the etymology of today’s word. Here is the answer:
The word “every” comes from the Old English word “ǽfre-ǽlc,” which means “any group,” or “each taken separately.” The first part of the word, “ǽfre,” means “always” or “always,” and the second part, “ǽlc,” means “any” or “everyone.”
Later, “ǽfre-ǽlc” was shortened to “ǽlc,” and then “everrich” or “everilk” in Middle English. By the 1400s, the word had evolved into its modern spelling of “everyone.”
Interestingly, the word “any” is closely related to many other Germanic forms, such as German “jeder,” Dutch “ieder,” and Swedish “varje.”
