Quandary Resolution 1945
aesthete, ponderous, psephology, thwart
After dinner, Sergei's long-winded, ponderous anecdotes about his former life as a Soviet official psephologist were not to be thwarted even though the outcome of elections had always been a foregone conclusion; whereas Sasha's dissenting, droll asides (ever the quizzical aesthete) showed how much the samizdat must have owed to his wicked, cleverly-wrought lampoons.
