Quandary Resolution 1844
avuncular, stupefy, kismet, acta
Reviewing the acta of the Office of Public Housing was stupefyingly boring for the first several hours, but then the fledgling CPA realized something that snapped her wide awake in mid-yawn: the avuncular, hail-fellow-well-met, perennially good-humored Director had apparently "donated" almost a million dollars in federal funds to a handful of extreme right-wing hate groups and she, Alison W. Gershon, was the first to find out, so it looked as if kismet had marked her for promotion and awards after all.
