Quandary Resolution 1551
troglodyte, yob, vicarious, spatchcock
Most of the time, Yob lived quietly in a nice cave with a sandy floor and sparkles in the walls that glittered most delightfully in the morning sun, but every second Wednesday he got together with all the other troglodytes in the neighborhood for brunch, during which he sat contentedly on the sidelines, drinking mimosas and watching the youngsters dance on a rough wooden dance floor spatchcocked into an indentation in the mountainside, vicariously reliving his younger days, when he had been widely considered the best-looking caveman ever to trip the light fantastic.
