Quandary Resolution 1340
congeries, nostrum, delegate, noctivagant
As demand for her nostrum increased, the aging proprietrix of Ye Olde Cure Shoppe, who couldn't mix sufficient quantities from the congeries of powders and extracts on hand, delegated the task of ingredient gathering to a troop of noctivagant elves, who roamed field and forest in search of the essential moonflowers and vespertine beetles, while she, the proprietrix, waited back at the Shoppe with a power blender and thirty gallons of high fructose corn syrup.
