Quandary Resolution 1407
esurient, prolix, scuttlebutt, cakewalk
I was esurient for dessert (which had just been served to the soap-opera stars at the table beside ours), and my dinner companion was esurient for scuttlebutt (which she was trying to eavesdrop as it passed among the members of that same table), but our appetites were frustrated by our prolix waiter, who insisted on loudly and lengthily describing the details of every available confection: coaxing him to shut up and actually produce cake was no cakewalk.
