Quandary Resolution 2458
sitzfleisch, Stockholm syndrome, cuspidor, cosset
Dunstan had not been cosseted or indulged as a child and had developed champion sitzfleisch as a consequence of being a Presbyterian minister's son and having to spend hours sitting quietly through his dad's impenetrable sermons, so the first two hours of the monk's talk were a cinch, and halfway through the third hour he briefly developed Stockholm syndrome, seeing his captor as flawed but kindly and well-intentioned, but by hour four he was ready to dismember the logorrheic swine and use his empty skull for a cuspidor, although on reflection spitting into it seemed insufficiently disrespectful once it occurred to him to use it as a urinal.
