WORDY WEDNESDAY #10
PENT WORDS 2
In this puzzle, you must divide the grid into pentominoes (regions containing five cells each), and write a letter in each cell. The rows, reading from left to right, will contain the words hinted at by the ACROSS clues. The letters in the pentominoes, in reading order (left to right starting with the top row), will form the words hinted at by the PENTOMINOES clues; these clues are presented in no particular order. (In the example above, the rows spell PLANT, SHARE, and BITES, and the pentominoes spell the words PLANS, TREES, and HABIT.) Use the ACROSS answers to determine where the pentominoes are.
ACROSS (two answers per row):
1 4, to 2 / Ladder step
2 Many / ____ salad
3 Used a phone / Saturn manufacturer
4 Fire / Voice actor Mel
5 Elevator alternative / "A ____ of Two Cities"
6 Symbol on a music staff / "God Save the Queen", e.g.
7 Like bad toast / Belief that God doesn't interfere with nature
8 "Is that your final ____?" / Actress Kelly
9 Like a lion, but not a lioness / ____ de coin
10 Word on a magician's box / Modern ___
