Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


It was with a nonchalance verging on pigritude, that my Big Brother slid a pair of cooling glasses on to the bridge of his nose and lay back down on the grass; which was when it happened, the inexplicable: utterly earth-shattering, absolutely impossible to describe in words, it changed everything and even now, just thinking about it, after all those years, I can feel my heart-rate change, shivering with goose-bumps all over my body, and the sudden wave of heat inside me, bringing a flood of sweat as my pores opened and my skin was awash; and all because of that single moment in time!
