Quandary Resolution 2210
limn, rictus, glabrous, autoschediastical
In the crowd of bearded men, Henry's face was conspicuously glabrous, like the surface of a blancmange, and it didn't help that his mouth was agape in a rictus of fear (because, even though he didn't understand a word of Arabic he could still tell that the crowd's angry gestures were undeniably limning his imminent demise), and he struggled to improvise a solution to his unexpected and dire problem, even though he had never been much of an autoschediast.
