Quandary Resolution 1628
salina, icily, grimalkin, foudroyant
She stares at me icily, my assigned grimalkin, my whiskered old witch of a waitress: she's unmoved as I reject the appetizer (I had ordered a salad, not a salina!), and, when I exclaim that the hypertensive effects of such food could be fatally foudroyant, she only purrs.
