Brain Game: Trash Talkin'
While carryingÂ our garbage out to the curb yesterday, I took a header off the second-from-bottom step of our front porch. Not surprisingly, I took a nasty spill onto our driveway. My old gym teacher would have been proud, as I managed to perform a sort-of tuck and roll like I'd been taught inÂ PhysEd class, but I still heard an audible "snap" as my chest hit the pavement.Â Cracked aÂ rib? Quite possibly... but I'm feeling okay; at least well enough to compose a new Brain Game in remembrance of my debut (and hopefully swan song) as a 42-year-old gymnast.
By filling in the blanks in these "RIB"Â terms with the proper letters, find the English words that best match each of the five given definitions. Good luck!
_ R I B _ _ _ : Â Did steal, particularly by concealment or hiding.
_ R I B _ _ _ :Â Crime committed during Teapot Dome scandal.
_ R I B _ _ _ :Â Mazda's current SUV offering.
_ R I B _ _ _ :Â An acid molecule with 3 replacable hydrogen atoms.
_ R I B _ _ _ :Â One of the things you can do with a basketball.
