This was a fairly straightforward one besides that when I received 4 letters in the fitting spot it got here all the way down to a serious guessing sport that would have been thwarted had I guessed too many IGHT phrases earlier than deciding on LIGHT. Fortuitously I knew ‘R’ was out (so no ‘RIGHT’ reply, because it have been) in addition to ‘S’ (get out of SIGHT!)
Going for ‘TIGHT’ was dangerous and didn’t repay.
Nonetheless, even thought ‘NIGHT’ was additionally off the mark, I got here to the ‘LIGHT’ earlier than losing any guesses on ‘FIGHT’ or ‘BIGHT’ (sure, it’s a factor and it doesn’t imply ‘BITE’) or ‘MIGHT’ or ‘WIGHT’—a phrase, had I used it for my last guess, that will have haunted me to my core.

“Immediately’s phrase has two main traces of that means, from two traces of etymology.

In fact, there are metaphorical makes use of, as in Jim Morrison’s “Come on, child, gentle my hearth,” or—and I apologize when you get this tune caught in your head—Debby Boone’s “You Mild up my Life.” So, you ask, what in regards to the third type, LITE?

The gross sales go up; the blandness abides.”
