Thanks, I liked this one. I got all but "labor." I didn't extend my thinking to a possible 5-letter word. I came up with a lame "day cap."

Jazz, that was a toughie

I got 2 of them : Day Job and
Day Camp
I started looking for Day Dream
but it wasn't there.

Really gave my brain a good workout

Super fun! I enjoy the language teasers. I was thrown off by #2 because the word order was backwards for the answer blank (Day _____ instead of _____ Day). It just didn't occur to me to reverse the order. Silly me. Nonetheless, it was a great teaser. Thanks.

Great teaser.
I missed #4 and thought it must have been day range, although I have no idea what a day range is!

Well drat (again)! Could not get my brain around this one. Slightly different than last couple of WWW teasers...and I was sooo sure I'd do better on the next

Good workout. I got the first three and was sure I had the last one with "day rag" (as in "daily rag" meaning a newspaper).

Not bad.

Only one thing I couldn't figure out, and it wasn't part of the teaser: how does this have a 2.44 difficulty rating?
