See how it works?

1. busines - unfinished business

2. rhutt fiction - truth is stranger than fiction

3. writiting - put it in writing

4. wa ys - parting of the ways

5. jump jump sheriff - two jumps ahead of the sheriff

6. I right I - right between the eyes

7. well enough - leave well enough alone

8. bucdropket - a drop in the bucket

9. herbuck - the buck stops here

10. timing tim ing - split-second timing
any more?

Today is the first day of the rest of your life, Make the most of it...

Hard to believe no one ever even replied to this one. It's great. Too bad I'm not quick enough to come up with my own rejoinders here. I do know I've seen some quips from others that indicate a high propensity for word play, so I do hope they'll give it a shot this time 'round.
Life is like playing chess with chessmen who each have thoughts and feelings and motives of their own.

USA Weekend, a Sunday Supplement magazine in US newspapers (you remember those -- no batteries or network connection needed to read them, color graphics mostly in one section on Sundays only), has a feature called Frame Games. It takes this word game to a new dimension--the second, as well as adding a graphical touch at times.

I'm sure it would test both Baily and Skinem to their utmost. Or at least make them testy.

"I have an exam tomorrow," said Tom testily.
