Thor’s day returns as the weeks cascade past us. We’re now nearly a third of the way through June, and my birthday looms large, a day before the Summer Solstice—the longest day of the year.
I was always happy to have a June birthday. It’s almost exactly six months from Christmas, which—as a child—meant my gifts were always nicely spread out. Birthday gifts in the summer, Christmas presents in the winter. Sure, it’s probably exciting to have your birthday near Christmas, but then all the fun is over for an entire year!
In any case, we’re a long ways from holiday season but summer is coming and it certainly already feels like summer outside as the days grow longer, hotter and dryer.
So let’s take a look at today’s Wordle, shall we? That is, after all, why you’re here!
Wordle is a simple game but can be tough if you get a hard word or unlucky guesses. Here are some guides to get you started if you’re new.

Today’s Wordle #355 Hint & Answer
Spoiler warning! The spoiler for today’s Wordle is forthcoming! You’ve been warned . . . .
First, this hint: Useful to know when buying belts.
And the answer is . . . .
I did sort of terrible this time around, truth be told. My opening guess—beard—only narrowed down my possible solutions to 125, but then my second guess—clout—chopped away 121 of those, leaving me with just four: fritz, girth, mirth and strip.
Of course, I had no way of knowing this at the time so I guessed ritzy which really ought to be a Wordle solution but apparently isn’t. This guess narrowed my solutions down to two and this is where I screwed up big time by guessing birth.
Frankly, it was the first thing that popped into my head and I just spaced the fact that “B” had been eliminated in my very first guess. After this, I assumed it must be mirth but that assumption was also wrong. Finally, and just in the nick of time, I guessed girth for the win.
Girth: Something that all too well describes my middle section these days. Time to lay off the beer and tortilla chips and fettucine for a bit!
Have a lovely Thursday, dearest Wordlers. Same bad time, same bad place tomorrow!
