Quandary Resolution 2314
milliner, narwhal, lucid, ambisinister
Madame Arnauld achieved her dream of becoming a milliner with her own shop on the Rue Monge, but unfortunately the poor woman was not very lucid when it came to recognizing her own limitations in the making of ladies' hats: she was ambisinister, as inept with one hand as with the other, and was also far too easily distracted from her work, the combination of which weaknesses resulted in a constant stream of small disasters, the most infamous instance being the time she tried to attach a gilded narwhal horn to the crown of one of her creations and somehow managed to cement it firmly to her own knee.
