Wordle | Wordled
For Sadje’s What Do You See? picture prompt.
“You’ve been Wordled,” guffaws Sam, as he and Nick stand in the alley exchanging their Wordle scores.
“What the heck is “Wordled?” quips Antonio mounting off his two-wheeled Scooty.
“Dude, it’s this 5-letter word game that has taken the internet by storm. It’s called Wordle. No marks for guessing that it was created by this fella called Josh Wardle!” explains Nick animatedly.
“And if that wasn’t enough, this Wardle guy created Wordle for his girlfriend, a word game fan; bang in the middle of this pandemic,” chips in Sam.
“Gosh! Doesn’t get more romantic than this, does it?” sighs Antonio.
“Or that’s how bored they were?”, chuckles Nick slyly.
Their raucous laughter resounds amidst the traffic sounds.
*The Wordle Aftermath*
“Jokes apart guys, I am completely addicted to Wordle,” says Sam.
“It’s slow paced, requires guessing just one 5-letter word, in six tries. Moreover, you wait until next day to play the next word. Easy-peasy Lemon and Shandy squeezy!!” giggles Sam.
“What’s more, as of now you don’t even need an online app to play the game. It is free on a website, and no sign-ups required!” continues Sam breezily.
“Dude, it’s addictive as hell. But I read today, NYT bought the rights to the game. Won’t be long before it becomes another paid app. But let’s make the most of it, while it’s got this home spun, handcrafted feel,” declares Nick.
“I spent almost an hour figuring “KNOLL”, while I parked aside that sales call. On most days I have it figured in 5 minutes. Thankfully, no Boss-man to keep an eye on me, with this WFH scenario!” says Nick smugly.
“LIGHT” yesterday just blew the living-daylights out of me,” proclaims Sam.
“I almost thought I wouldn’t have it figured. I never thought I could ever play word games, man. I’m used to playing others games well, as you two know!” winks Sam, while the others burst out laughing.
ADIEU guys! Wordle sounds SHARP and SHINY. I’m up for a SUPER LUCKY START,” announces Antonio as he takes off on his Scooty.
“Another one bites the dust,” chime Sam and Nick together.
