You can do one of four things to the word:

1. Add a Letter
2. Remove a Letter
3. Change a Letter
4. Word Morph!***

For example, if the starting word was

Box
You could change a letter: bot
You could change a letter: bit
You could then add a letter: bits
You could then change a letter: bite

Do not rearrange the order of the letters

***
If you can rearrange the letters, not adding or taking a letter away, and use all the letters, then you have a Word Morph!

***

I'll start off with: tell

Zap

tell = teal

Trapper
13-08-2009, 09:18 AM
teal = steal

Strong
13-08-2009, 09:19 AM
steal = stale

(that must be a word morph, how many points do I get? And how many points do I need before the striper turns up?)

Trapper
13-08-2009, 09:20 AM
(Isn't it ironic that you picked "late", since you were a bit late posting. Loss of 1 billion points)

Strong
13-08-2009, 09:21 AM
The irony made me edit my late post :lol:

Knowing my luck the stripper would have been Elizabeth Taylor, so I don't feel so bad about the penalty!

Trapper
13-08-2009, 09:22 AM
Ok, I'll give you half your points back.

Lets make it harder.

Leafblowers is truly one of the most pointless invention ever. Everybody use them in Vancouver, blowing the leaves into the neighbour's yard, weaiting for them to blow them back, with their leaves on top of that.

they don't fall for it like crazy but it sure helps. It's an ice breaker more than anything, some easy laughs and giggles at the beginning of the conversation.

in French we say: "Femme qui rit a moitie dans ton lit"
word for word:"Woman who you make laugh is half ready to go to bed with you"


but again, French women are easy.

"Don't I know you from somewhere?"

*bump* "Oh I'm sorry, let me buy you a drink to make up for my clumsiness.

I'm not really sure. I usually don't approach women I don't know. I don't have the balls for it.

I'd rather stand close by, makes witty comments and fun jokes and let her see me.

but that never works.

Women laugh at me all the time. Usually from a safe distance.

For Serge Gainsbourg it was, "I want to fuck her."

Sex is a beautiful thing between two people.

Between five it's extraordinary...

Best to take the 7pm to 9pm slot.

More hot action at that time.
