Quandary Resolution 2444
miasma, anile, apposite, lexicography
In early 1692, a palpable miasma floating over the Massachusetts town of Salem instilled a great foreboding in one Margaret S. because she was in truth quite anile, had a big mole on her long nose and occasionally cooked a wicked meal in a large black pot over a live fire, and it was very apposite therefore that she should remind all her neighbors that she knew nothing of witchcraft and that she was a wordsmith, a logophile and, by trade, a dedicated lexicographer.
