Les, your picture often has me questioning what you're up to now. But this latest one has me stumped! What are you supposed to be? A peanut? A jackfruit??

I was surprised for yesterday's Challenge game that areola was only found by 39 out of 354 people. Considering everyone has areolae, I figured it'd be higher.

Is there a different word used in other English speaking countries?

I tried the puzzle in Chrome and in IE 11 today (also tried chipuzzle and full screen mode) and the letters didn't show up. The boxes did, but there were no letters in there. I also tried refreshing the screen with no luck.

Unsee. I like the definition from Urban Dictionary best, though I see it's in Wiktionary and Meriam-Webster as well (it could also be in others).

Adj. Used to describe an object so horrific that it becomes seared into your retinas such that it can never be forgotten.

It's popular on sites like Buzzfeed. For example, "21 Things You Will Never Be Able To Unsee".

Incent - a back-formation of incentive; to provide an incentive.

Lots of discussion around whether it's a word or not. It seems pretty clear to me that whether or not most dictionaries accept it, there are a lot of examples of its usage.  It's certainly a buzzword at my company.

Drummies are chicken wings or "buffalo wings" without the smaller joint.

Words / Betel

I had never heard of a betel before. (An evergreen Indo-Malayan climbing or trailing shrub (Piper betle), having usually ovate leaves used to wrap betel nuts.)

Perhaps trees, shrubs, and other plants need to be treated similarly to fish?

I was thinking in terms of respooling thread for sewing, but in Googling, I see it is used for respooling all sorts of things from film, to thread, to fishing reels.
