Quandary Resolution 2009
in toto, allusive, vanilla, hallow
The shopkeeper, approaching from behind, whispered to me of the jar and its contents, letting me know that the spice I beheld was no ordinary vanilla—no vanilla vanilla as it were, but rather the exemplar, the very vanilla of vanillas!—a hallowed specimen, its aroma allusive of ecstasy itself... “a small fragment would be priceless, but because you are so discerning and loyal a customer— your name?—ah, just take it all, the magnificent bean in toto, for a wee $65.95—take it!”
