Keep SMiling

Postby LadyKestrel » Thu Sep 28, 2017 12:00 pm

I've decided to dust off this part of the manor with a small word puzzle. Each of the definitions below belongs to a word with the letter combination “sm”. Beside each one are the number of letters in that particular answer. Take turns guessing them with one guess per turn.

Heh. I realized I had put one of the answers in by mistake, so I changed it to another word.

#4 is correct, JK.
