Welcome to the Guess My Word blog. This is a place to discuss the words of the day chosen by Joon and Mike. This paragraph is here mostly as spoiler space. Here are today's words:

mike's word: palatable
joon's word: crestfallen



  1. Mike, you nearly done me in! I was so sure it was 'palanquin' but I was misspelling it, so I sat and sat trying different variations... Only when I gave up on it did I find the right path.

  2. Sometimes I feel like the slowest person in the world when I play this game. I had "palace" and "palate," and I stared at it for a good three or four minutes before "palatable" came to mind, giving me (at present) the longest time of anyone on this word so far. I've never been accused of being slow, but compared to the majority of people here I seem to be appallingly so.

    1. i had a major slowdown at exactly the same point, although i eventually started guessing random strings of letters (including palais, which turns out to be legit). i don't know the word palanquin.

    2. I got to PALANQUIN and PALATE, and never did get to PALATABLE at all. Some kind of blind spot today, I guess; my wife tells me Mercury is in retrograde, so perhaps that explains it.
