Quandary Resolution 1801
fatwa, rain on someone's parade, plumply, rigmorole
After a ridiculous rigmarole of searching, René noticed Apolline’s eyes finally lingering on a plumply shaped perfume bottle, and as he did not want to discourage her he said nothing, he only turned his eyes to the raindrops sliding down the window and rain and raindrops and rain on her parade and as right as rain came into his mind, and other words, many, while she went through the usual rigmorole of arguments in favour of and against buying the perfume, and after she finally bought it, he proposed they should have a coffee before the airplane departure, and as they reached the bar, they involuntarily overheard two people, already seated, conversing about the fatwa of the day, while they, too tired to talk, only sat down, and drank the coffee in silence.
