There once was a family of spies.
One of them is celebrating his birthday, and the Mommy spy gave him gifts.
The celebrant did not say anything; instead he gave this set of words:
toes
heat
ambition
nose
kiss
see
for
oneupmanship
route
tough
and because the family are spies, the Mom understood the message.
What was the message?

There once was a man, who usually went to the bar on Sundays, and drank. But one particular Sunday, the man was drunk when he came across a rich man staring at an old bridge. The bridge was full of dirt, sod, and bugs. The rich man then saw that the drunk man was going to cross the dirty bridge. The rich man told him, "That bridge is so dirty, nobody wants to cross it. If you can cross it, without any part of your body touching it, I will pay you \$1,000. If you do touch it with any part of your body, then you will have to pay me \$100." Being drunk, the man agreed, but then suddenly realized what he was agreeing to. But then, he thought of an idea, and then crossed the bridge according to the rich man's rules, and later returned home \$1,000 richer.
