Sick of the math/logic ones now.

Take the given words, and by moving a single letter from one word to the other, make a pair of synonyms, or near synonyms. For example, given: Boast - Hip, move the 's' from 'Boast' to 'Hip' creating two synonyms: Boat - Ship.

1. Pain - Nil
2. War - Zoned
3. Routing - Tip
4. Shot - Teaming
5. Right - Blight

I didn't get #3 here:

---

Inside each set of the following words, there are a pair of smaller words. By putting & between them, lo & behold, you'll make a familiar phrase. For example, "Thighbone/Swallowtail" conceals "High & Low."

1. Gulliver/Clearness
2. Tragicomedy/Pentagon
3. Chinchilla/Magdalene
4. Terrestrial/Ecoterrorist
5. Thundershower/Intellectual

Calling a child Dale Hill (or Glen Howe, for that matter) would be a silly mistake. :)

Hill & Dale sound like a ventriloquist and his dummy or a morning radio show to me.

The balloon tattoo committee's keenness was coolly noted by the sweettoothed but toolless subbookkeeper, leaving them with nowhere to hold their meetings. However, the head bookkeeper, who was Finnish, declared the subbookkeeper's judgment puutteellinen, and promised them the use of a nearby liikkeessään. :)
