wishbone is the word using all the letters.
I got "bosh", Susan, becuase they allowed it on a previous occasion. And I also got "nosh" on the principle that if they allowed bosh they’d allow nosh. But I missed "wino" (and nowise, sone, ebon, bowsie, ebon and eosin — that last I should have got as it is a chemical).
Re. kist (yesterday), I thought it meant a poetic past tense of "kissed" but that is me winging it so don’t take my word for it!
