First- and last-letter alphabet game

Post an expression beginning and ending with the same letter of the alphabet: e.g. algebra, blob, civic, deed, …

We will go through the letters alphabetically.

Your expression can be a single word (e.g. extreme) or a phrase (e.g. extreme value); it can also be a proper name (including well-known fictional names) (e.g. Falstaff). It can also be in any language other than English! This should come in handy for tricky letters like J, Q and X.

Okay, first word …

algebra


Me, or the ugly man, whatever (3,3,6)
