It’s Wednesday, dearest Wordlers, and that means Wordle Wednesday is upon us! For those of you who stop by here regularly, you’ll already be familiar with this, but I’ll explain it for the newcomers.
Each Wednesday, instead of just solving the daily Wordle, I also post a riddle, logic puzzle or brain-teaser for you to solve. I post the answer on Thursday, and in the meantime—if you’re witty and savvy enough to solve it—you can shoot me a message with the correct answer on Twitter or Facebook.
Here’s today’s riddle:
You’re escaping a labyrinth, and there are three doors in front of you. An old man stands in front of the doors and tells you what’s behind each one: The door on the left leads to a raging inferno. The door in the center leads to a deadly assassin. The door on the right leads to a lion that hasn’t eaten in three months.
Which door do you choose?
Okay, time to do this Wordle!

Wordle Bot Analysis
After each Wordle I solve I head over to the Wordle Bot homepage to see how my guessing game was.
Well I guess today’s Wordle makes up for my lousy guessing yesterday. Also, love is in the air! Lover was as close to perfect as you can get without guessing in 1. Miraculously, not only did it get me three correct letters, it left me with just one word to choose from—and after a bit of juggling, the answer was obvious: clear.
I get 2 points for guessing in two and 1 point for beating the Bot who got the Wordle in three (slate / caned / clear). That’s 3 points! Too bad it’s not 2XP Friday! Still, I’m giving myself a triple Huzzah! Huzzah! Huzzah!
Today’s Wordle Etymology
The word “clear” has its origins in the Old English language. It can be traced back to the Old English word “clǣr,” which meant “bright” or “shining.” This Old English term evolved from the Proto-Germanic word “klaraz,” which had a similar meaning of “clear” or “bright.”
Over time, the word “clear” came to encompass a broader range of meanings related to transparency, purity, and freedom from impurities or obstructions. It is used today to describe something that is easy to see or understand, unobstructed, or free from confusion or ambiguity.
