Attempts to resolve the Quandary:



Profiling of castle visitors in the Middle Ages did not meet the standards of today’s law enforcement procedures, but Jeremiah did not fit the picture of the local gentry whom the king’s guards would intromit to the castle grounds during special occasions such as hunting parties, knightly tournaments, or feast days with tables piled high with sumptuous edibles, so Jeremiah spent most of his waking moments skulking about in the woods outside the castle walls, trying to triangulate the perfect position from which he could launch himself inside using a slingshot crafted from animal hides and sinew, which could be tied between two trees, and quickly pulled back and released at just the right moment to send him skyward.
