When I first saw the word grid for Connections today, I was equal parts confused and annoyed. However, after composing myself, I began wrestling with languages and how some of these might mean yes. And while I was almost there, Oui kept holding me back. That was when my colleague pointed out that it could be a homophone. Once we saw that, we collected all similar words and got the purple category first! Yeah, the purple category (😎).
Once Oui was out of the way, it was easy to club the other languages together and get the blue category. The Yellow one followed almost immediately, even though I had to stop and think (Google!) about what Pu meant. With only four words left again, I combined them to finally get the Green category and solved the NYT Connections for November 15.
