Quandary Resolution 2364
valetudinarian, antœci, torpedo, daedal
Six year old Tony, a veritable Daedalus of youthful inventiveness, escaped the claustrophobic, valetudinarian fug of his great grandmother's South Philadelphia row house and spent the afternoon in the backyard, working on a scheme to drill through the earth using his great grandmother's immersion blender and her classic torpedo-shaped Shaeffer fountain pen with its nice sharp nib, undaunted by the fact that he would emerge in the Indian Ocean off the coast of southwestern Australia and that his only autoeci would be fish, hoping in fact that enough of the water from the ocean would drain through into the backyard to distract his great grandmother from the loss of her tools.
