    #1 = Pet Semetary
    #2 = Scottish
    #3 = oh I dunno, how about the Scottish Wars of Independence
    #4 = A
    #5 = beheading? that sounds gruesome to me
    #6 = Clouseau – which isn’t right but that’s the only chief inspector I know
    #7 = Something sweet, like your little boy – a plum
    #8 = Governor Gage – haha. William Gage? I should really know this living in Boston shouldn’t I?
    #9 = 1989
    #10 = I’m guessing Texas simply because there are a boatload of people living there and it sounds more southern to me.
