Quandary Resolution 1969
parsimonious, unmask, sylvan, moue
'Your quondam liberality contrasts markedly with this parsimonious ungenerosity,' piped up two little trick-or-treaters on their third visitation that evening to my sylvan retreat by Walden Pond, each child briefly unmasking in order to display a gurning moue of pique that soured still further as I strove to enlighten them with homilies on the evils of extortion.
