With his tossing partner, Lenny, Manny is about to try another daring trick using five balls! Manny will start with five four-letter words and Lenny will hold five letters: A, B, C, D, and E. After Manny rearranges each word to form another four-letter word, Lenny will toss one of the letters over to Manny which, when put at the beginning of each new four-letter word, will create a new five-letter word! Unfortunately Lenny has forgotten just which letter to toss at which time.....
Here's an example. Manny starts with the word PALM. He juggles it to create LAMP. Now Lenny could toss over the C to make the word CLAMP!

Here are the words. First, rearrange each four-letter word into a new one. Then, add either A, B, C, D or E at the beginning of the new word to create a brand new five-letter word. Each of Lenny's five letters will be used only once.

MEAL
TALE
LANE
TARP
VEIL

WARNING! While some words can be rearranged different ways to be used with more than one of Lenny's letters, there is only one combination that will allow each of his letters to be used only once.
