Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


"So why were you asking? about Ember Days, like out of nowhere, after we've been sitting half-an-hour waiting to be seen—well, me, I don't know why you're still here—you just open your mouth and ask me what do I know about them, like it's something we'd been discussing, so, who mentioned them? what friend of who? oh, the missing woman, Lollobello Montecello? yes, slightly, she's been to the restaurant a few times, not quite regular, but fairly frequent, usually with a woman friend, sometimes two, and a couple of times with that miscreant, the one who had me jumped, Roger Muddler! so, yo-ho-ho, it pays to come to the fountainhead, doesn't it, sea-puss? oh, and by the way, you must've misheard, because another couple of times Miss Montecello came with Amber Day! ah, at last, you'd better wait here if you want to know more, God knows how long this is going to take, wish me luck."
