# So Many Homophones?

A twist on my previous puzzle So many anagrams. Instead of finding anagrams for the blanks you have to find two homophones/homographs(bat-bat, and doe-dough) that fit into the provided blanks. Note: The number of blanks does not mean the number of letters and there will be a different set of hompphones for each numbered sentence

1. Donny started to _____ up when he saw that there was a _____ in his leather seats.

2. Mike took his _____ on a date to the ______.

3. After an _____ course meal, Joe figured that he ______ enough!

4. He was wishing that his ______ would ______, because he wanted to start playing soccer again.

5. Because the ________ was flat, it was a perfect spot to land their _______.

6. After bathing their pet ______ the drain was full of ______.

7. They _____ed the couch through the ____.

8. Talking ______ is not _________.

9. They went through the _____ _____ and got lost while trying to get out.

10. To be more efficient in landscaping our yard we worked in ____s. First we _____d the ____ tree so it would not look so bushy, then we cut the grass.

11. Ally only went to the shoe-stores that had a wide variety of _______, and after she was done shopping, she knew _______ she was going to ______ all the shoes.

12. _____ days ago, I wanted to do a trick shot ____ my turn, so I swung as had as I could but the ball was about to hit my coach, so I screamed _____!

• Are you sure these are all homophones? It looks like #1 may be a homograph (same spelling, different sound and meaning) instead. Or I may be thinking of the wrong answer. Apr 21, 2018 at 20:22
• Hmmm remember what happened last time you did "So many anagrams?" It seems like things have calmed down a bit...lol Apr 21, 2018 at 20:57
• Oh. I just spent a good ten minutes trying, and utterly failing, to solve this, until I finally gave up in exasperation and looked at the accepted answer. Turns out it was the instructions that were misleading—you don’t have to find two homophones/homographs (one pair), but twenty-seven (twelve sets of two or three each, one set per sentence). I was desperately trying to find one single pair of homophones or homographs that would fit all twelve sentences. :-/ Apr 22, 2018 at 8:46
• Also, one of the three in #12 is neither a homophone nor a homograph with the others. It’s both spelt and pronounced differently (in this context) than the other two. Apr 22, 2018 at 8:52
• #3 should be "eight" and "had eaten" Apr 22, 2018 at 17:48

• 7 is possibly ROT13

• While I think 3 is correct, there is a slight problem with the article preceding the first word.

• @Bass yeah, I noticed that, but figured QuantumTwinkie might have felt that "an" or "a(n)" was too much of a hint Apr 21, 2018 at 23:00

• Ooh, that's a nice answer for #2! My answer has a few of the ones you're missing, though I know sometimes it's more fun to not peek :) Apr 21, 2018 at 20:31
• Yeah, you were fast (and good). There were no answers when I started writing, but you had it almost finished before I posted. Good job! Apr 21, 2018 at 20:39

I found another one:

11:

ware / where / wear

I found another one:

1. They went through the $\underline{sweet}$ $\underline{suite}$ and got lost while trying to get out.

And another one, but a little relaxed.

1. They $\underline{miss}$ed the couch through the $\underline{mist}$.

And another that although makes sense, seems a bit silly.

1. After bathing their pet $\underline{moose}$ the drain was full of $\underline{mousse}$.

If I could add apostrophes or one other word, I would include for $8$,

"Talking write${}$" is not right.

A talking chilli is not chilly.

• Very, clever I didn't think of those. Jul 10, 2018 at 15:57
