    Throw some shrimp (and some anagrams!) on the barbie! Within the sentences below are 10 jumbled phrases. Each is an anagram (rearrangement) of a word or phrase that helps complete the story.
    Can you decipher all 10?

    WET SIGNS=SWING SET
    HOSS HEROES=HORSESHOES
    I’ve done these two for you now you do the rest!

    The kids were playing on the WET SIGNS, Uncle Frank and Jack from next door were playing a game of HOSS HEROES, and it was time for the grill. The THICK TRIO was lighted, and the TOAST PIE had been dusted off. Kristen, their teenager, was stretched out on the EAGLE CUSHION and talking on her CLONE HELP as usual. The RUM LABEL offered some shade, and it was time for the announcement: “NO HBO CONCERT!” This was followed by PRESCRIBE MAD HUB and a genial reminder: TO CHOKE SKIS!
