The object of these teasers is to figure out a commonly used phrase of two words. The phrase has omitted from it any letters that the two words have in common with each other. The number of missing letters from each appear next to the word. A hint has been included to round it out. Example:

B(2) TRY(2) + "Tale of Tears" = SOB STORY

Based on the above principle, what are these five two-word phrases?

1. TETIAL(4) DWPU(4)+ "Forget the umbrella"

2.ALY(2) TIMNT(5)+"Why wait until I'm a Senior Citizen?"

3.FT(3) MPEON(6)+ "Right foot first?"

4.ELEPNE(3) B(4)+ "Super dressing room?"

5.DE(3) COSTCTIO (4)+ "In Progress"
