    Huh?

    No idea.
    only synonyms for "blessings" (4 letters and plural)
    I can find are: acts, aids, joys and nods

    What degree do you have in math (or in enigmatology)? Either a BA or an AB would be suitable...

    Yes. Boon = blessing, but would mean boons (plural)
    as solution, but solution has 4 letters.

    boon1
    noun
    1. something to be thankful for; blessing; benefit.

    I think I forgot to count. It seemed so obvious ...

    IT IS obvious and I'm sure you're correct.

    Either Mark showed (4) in error, or "boon" is both singular and plural...
    Or clue itself should contain "blessing", not "blessings".

    Ha! I thought you were being sarcastic. (Then I looked it up.) Even so, still a good joke …
