For more use the DOOR.




 (4)  He would lead if he could get the lead out.

 (5)  The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert. (Did desserts make him more stressed?¹)

 (6)  Since there’s no time like the present, he thought is was time to present the present.

 (7)  When shot at the dove dove into the bushes.

 (8)  They were too close to the door to close it.

 (9)  The buck does funny things when the does are present.

(10)  The wind is too strong to wind the sail.

(11)  After a number of injections my jaw got number.
