I'm just wondering how I misspelled pepperoni that it wasn't accepted...

I totally missed pioneer and decided repine wasn't a word (with which the spellchecker just agreed! ).

Thirty common words today but what mystifies me is why it took me so long to find mistime…

Don't blame me,  I didn't have it! And the only word I missed.

It seems testifies and itself were easy to miss and I’ll add leftist to that even though I had leftish and lefties. Maybe I was so chuffed to get another all letter uncommon I didn't look further.

BUBBLEGUM!

By gum I would not have got that, but I did surprise myself with the maven. I haven't got any sort of gong for so long.

I don't think there was anyone behind me in the queue  for the barque.

I was surprised by shifter being rare  I've owned at least one most of my adult life and have 2 in the toolbox at the moment.

I thought it was odd and put it down to a northern hemisphere bias against us. Terra australis incognito stuff.

The Daily Quest / Yelnats a cheat!

If you check when today's 7xmany puzzle opens, you will find I have the word plus 14 others within seconds.  If it was a higher scoring game I would have had more.

Just jumping the gun rather than cheating!

2 days ago, 2 short, accede and acceded. At least I was consistent.

1 day ago, 1 short, iciness which matches the weather! (Figuratively)

RTT queried caballero being common. The word appears quite a lot in English language publications, but on closer inspection virtually always as a proper name. Is it, nevertheless, a word that most players would know? I'm not sure, but factoring in that many would think it likely ineligible as a foreign word, I feel it should be classed as rare.

¡Gracias, señor!

Stagy and shyly did me in, but I was very distracted by Lysaght - a steel roofing maker in the town where I grew up. I  kept seeing it and missed shyly when I had slyly. I would never have got stagy without an E.
