Quandary Resolution 1690
distaff, orbicular, paranymph, rubric
The men and women's bathrooms were labeled with a spear and a distaff, respectively, but these recondite rubrics only created confusion among the paranymphs at the wedding rehearsal, with the best man entering the opposite sex's facility and, to his sheer and utter horror – a horror so sheer and utter it almost doubled back on itself and became quite tolerable – finding several bridesmaids there in states of increased orbicular exposure.
