Every morning I come into the living room and sit on the sofa and my brain says, “Wordle”, so I’m soon playing that game. This has been going on for months.

Last week I went camping for three nights and I didn’t think of Wordle a single time. The morning after I returned I went into the living room and sat on the sofa and my brain said, “Wordle”.

It’s crazy how much of a pattern recognizer and responder the brain is, and how it makes these long lasting habits. Break a pattern briefly, lose a habit briefly.

Oh, and there was a time I used to get bothered by breaking a streak, but I’m glad that’s behind me.
