Quandary Resolution 1738
ivory tower, eclectic, pink, quaggy
On the soggy fringes of Quaggy Bog in an ivory tower yellowed by time, with one small window at the tippy top, there lived a very ancient and very learned gentleman (a bit out of touch with the common people perhaps, by virtue of his tower being so far elevated above their modest dwellings), whose groceries and sundries were sent up weekly in a basket on the end of a long rope, so that he had not only food and drink, but clean laundry, candles, nourishing tonics to keep in him in the pink of health, and an astonishingly eclectic collection of books so that he could learn everything there was to know in the whole world.
