Quandary Resolution 1317
Buridan's ass, apothecary, apotheosis, swain
Our local apothecary, a compulsive prankster, recently dispensed to a chronically hypochondriacal love-sick customer a bottled placebo curiously labelled 'Solution of Buridan's Ass' which, once taken strictly as prescribed, in its apparent inefficacy only persuaded the sorry swain that he must be the apotheosis of yearning indecision, for he remained rationally incapable of choosing between his two enduring passions - the beautiful Henrietta who was rich but stupid, or the equally beautiful Nora who was stupid but rich.
