Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


Deeply disillusioned with her kitten heels, seeing as they'd attracted such a short and clunky suitor, Wendy abandoned Mr. Wrong and his beer at the picnic table and took a postprandial skinny-dip solo, wearing her underperforming shoes for the very last time and causing significant bioturbation as she stomped and drove their points into the sediment.

Shortly before lunch, the appearance of an exotic newcomer, Valencia, in the offlce typing pool had caused a degree of bioturbation among the other girls, for they had looked on in shaken disbelief as, five foot ten in her kitten-heels, she arose from her desk to inform the diminutive supervisor that she had not taken on this lousy job with the intention of sacrificing even one minute of her postprandial siesta, and that her disillusionment with the British way of life was now complete.
