I was halfway through before the name of the Title kicked in - the 1st word in each answer started with G - I finished even more quickly than I started! - I enjoyed this quiz very much

I was practically finished before I realized all the first words began with G!! I finally made use of that hint for the last pair--got 'alley' first. Very easy, but fun!
