The "A" Game


Richard Lederer


When someone had a good day on the athletic field, we say "She brought her "A" game with her." Now I invite you to play a different kind of "A" game, one involving charaded homogrpahs and homophones. Each answer consists of words that sound alike, although the words may be spelled differently. The answer will always be in the form of "a + word + word" or "word + a + word". From each definition you are to identify the words.
