Quandary Resolution 1822
samizdat, agape, tittup, satori
Mona thought maybe the name of the new restaurant, Samizdat, meant "Saturday" in Turkish or something, which she thought was clever and edgy, so she and her self-consciously dressed-up girlfriends minced down the steps and through the door, only to be mystified by the spectacle of an old printing press and a couple of stacks of banned books where the tables and chairs should have been, which made them stand with their mouths agape like baby birds waiting to be fed, but then Mona had one of those moments of twenty-something satori for which she was justly renowned and said, "Oh! It's not a restaurant!", so they all tittupped out again and had lunch at Denny's instead.
