Side Puzzles

By William F. Bultas
The answer to each of the following puzzles is a word that is made using the word side, or that includes the sound that is made by the word side. Examples: sideswipe & suicide. A number in parentheses follows each puzzle - this is the number of letters in the word. Take as much time as you need, but don't get help from anyone, or use any reference aids if you want to get a 'valid' score & ranking using the scale below. Have fun!
