Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


"Maybe I should point out that Georgie is a Brit, calls herself an English Rose, though she don't look like no rose I ever saw, 'cept for being kinda spiky, but once you get to know her, she's just fine, most of the time, but she does have this accent, she calls it an Oxford Drawl, an' it sure nuff helps her stand out from the other gals at the truck stopthat's another thing, she calls it a Lorry Park and you gotta get used to these funny words an' terms she uses, like when we troll about the sidewalk, back of Main, she says we're workin' the pavement, but I don't want to sound parochialthat's another of hersI don't care where anyone comes from, only what's in their heart, or if it's a John, his wallet, but I'm gettin' away from the point, you wanted to know 'bout Georgie, an' a good example is when we went to the Hospital to get vaccinated, Georgie called it inoculated, an' the nurse pulled up the sleeve of my T an' gave me the shot, just there, an' was gonna do the same for Georgie, to put the needle in her arm, but Georgie said, though I can't do the Drawl like the way she does: 'oh, no! nawt where it can be seeeeen,' an' she hikes up her skirt an' yanks down her panties an' tells the nurse where to stick the needle, an' she uses this word I never heard before an' I doubt the nurse did either, she says, not a bit apologetically: 'do forgive the angustation, but I'm abso-fuckin-lutely not having needle mawks where the eyes of the entire world can see them, so that's where you can stick it!' an' she indicates with two fingers this teenie-weenie area just about where it would be hidden by the hip-strap of a thong, an' the nurse—Lord knows where she found the self-control, 'cause if a stranger spoke to me like that I'da slapped her so hard the welts would show for weekscool an' calm as can be, smiled an' said: 'certainly Ma'am, just as you prefer,' an' slid the needle in, though I swear it was a longer needle than the one she used on me, but Georgie never winced, nor flinched, never a flicker, not nuthin' till it was out, an' then she flashed the nurse a big smile an' thanked her, just as if she was dismissin' a waitress who'd brought her a cup of that Darjeelin' tea she loves, an' the nurse knew it, but never said a word, but I betcha she'da had plenty to say when the folks were gone an' the nurses were free to bitch about the whoores an' weirdos an' nuts they had to deal with, but that's Georgie, she don't mean nuthin' by it, she ain't malicious or deliberately obstreperous, but if somethin's important to her, she'll tell it like it is, which is how I first heard that Lollobello Montecello was nowhere to be seen!"
