Amanda - seems like my son inherited the need for little sleep also. Even when he was a wee little one. I think my parents slept something like a normal amount though they were both morning persons.

If you think looting is bad wait until I tell you about civil forfeiture.

What a lucky kid, jon! He has the best of everything.

I wonder if there are times you wake up before the birds and find him awake too, to keep you company.

Especially as I age, I'm afraid I'm more at the "needing more sleep than average" end of the bell curve.

A successful morning for me would be Waffle.

Preferably with Maple.

I do Wordle, Worldle, Dordle, and Quordle with my morning coffee.

My record with the word games (Wordle, Dordle, and Quordle) is good. I've only missed Wordle once, and I've missed the others a handful of times.

Worldle is more of a carpshoot. I rarely recognize the country/territory, but I often--maybe more often than not? Not sure--get it from the distance and direction clues. If I'm sure that I'm not going to get it by guessing, I give up and consult a map, figuring that I might as well learn something. My success rate has risen since they started recycling countries/territories/islands/whatevers.

I have done it twice now but have yet to successfully solve Quordle. But I like it!

I haven't tried Worldle in a while, I was so bad at it that it's just embarrassing rather than fun! Maybe I'll try again... suave

I am not rigid about my starting words, as that feels a bit monotonous for me. Generally, I think of a random five-letter word made up of common letters, then I follow it up with another five-letter word made up of common letters.

If those guesses were lucky, I take a moment to consider whether I can just solve it. (I've gotten a few twos, so I move to this step early if the first guess was a lucky one.)

If things are moving slowly, I try to think of a third word with no overlaps. On Quordle, I might even go to a fourth word. I like the challenge of coming up with those so much that it's almost like an extra puzzle. After three or four minimal-overlap guesses, solving the words is usually pretty straightforward. (Having said that, I will probably never be successful again.)

My guess would be either “hacks” or “tools”. Maybe “fraud” or “liars.”
