Quandary Resolution 253
expiate, buttress, littoral, exegesis
Petunia chose to expiate her many sins by doing as some early Church Fathers had and sitting on a tall thin object; when asked why she had chosen a sea stack on the edge of the cold North Sea rather than a pillar in the desert, Petunia buttressed her explanation saying that she had chosen to make a more littoral exegesis of St. Simeon Stylites' practice.
