More Tom Swifties.(For example "I'll have a martini," said Tom, drily.) As ever, grovelling apologies for any re-runs

Some of these are very clever and quite tough, so being all heart, I've given you first letter and length as a starter grin·

As ever, an asterisk represents a "real" hyphen.

One answer each for first 24 hours, please.

-1. "How on earth can I open the bidding with a Yarborough?," asked Tom p----------.
-2. "My cardiologist says I've got to lose weight", said Tom w--- a h---- h----.
-3. "Stick 'em up", said Tom h---*h-------.
-4. "If the part of the plane that hold the engines fall off, we'll crash", said Tom k--------.
-5. "My statement just doesn't add up," said Tom, sounding u---------.
-6. "I am here with my friend Hamlet," said Tom with d------.
-7. "I guess you're wondering why I'm wearing this chemise", said Tom s-------.
-8. "Since the Covid lockdown, I'm actually saving money", said Tom n---------.
-9. "I often disguise myself as a nun," said Tom h---------.
-10. "We all know what comes after 'X'." said Tom, w-----.

1. pointlessly smile


Sometimes lost is where you need to be. Just because you don't know your direction doesn't mean you don't have one.
