 PentaWord 1 (Posted on 2011-12-14)
Replace the red numerals, 0 to 9, with a unique letter of the alphabet around the pentagram to form five 4-letter words which read in the direction of the arrows.

Allowing that letters have a positional value in the alphabet (1-26), the sum for each word value appears as a green two digit numeral on the diagram.

Each of the five words has some association with a different word in this phrase -
"Not the life of a sparkling female kid Paulette."
The words are common enough, but may not be mainstream in some gatherings.
