Quandary Resolution 1997
wherefore, vapid, crapulous, gest
Once the guests had finished boring each other with obligatory toasts in honor of the birthday boy, Harry himself stood up and offered something less vapid: not the typical "thank you" for his friends' attendance, but a searching introspection into the origins of his own present aspect, beginning with the immortal line "Wherefore art I crapulous?" and continuing with an account of his recent selection and consumption of some ten-odd mixed beverages, this remarkable exposition framed as a hero's journey, a noble gest.
