NYT May 4 Answers

Honestly, I was disappointed that today’s NYT Connections puzzle didn’t feature a single Star Wars reference. Nonetheless, I began by solving the Yellow category first. Who doesn’t like enjoying nice things, right? As such, these were as typical as they come.

I then moved on to the Green category, and boy, oh boy, does Gen Z love to use these annoying terms. With that, umm, like done, I proceeded to the Blue category. Besides the word Tumbler, I had all of them quite easily. However, I also identified the word lock after some quick word association.

As usual, only four words remained. I put them all together, along with the Purple category and the NYT Connections puzzle for May 4.
