Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


Teri seethed with swashbuckling angst as her fructuous mobile phone selected ingenious instead of ingenuous to make nonsense of her carefully crafted sentence - Grrrrrowl!!! (by MissTeriWoman)


Rosie, her angst reduced and her good spirits rising, demonstrably more fructuous in her demeanour and her thoughts, asked Teri if they might go out as the weather had improved - she seemed as ingenious as a child, simple in her wants and needs, and when Teri suggested a drive to Falkirk to visit The Kelpies, Rosie's face lit up and she clapped her hands with joy - for neither of them had been to the magnificent, swashbuckling statues, great white horses heads, rearing over the Forth and Clyde Canal hard by the final lock, where it tumbles into the great, tidal, Eastern river and the sight of their power and strength gave the cousins much to wonder over as, in the afternoon, they took tea and toasted tea-cakes in a pretty little cafeteria in Bo'ness before driving back to Rosie's cottage for an evening snuggled before it's comforting fire.
