Quandary Resolution 2633
larrikin, potentate, doff, abstemious
Big Eddie Salamando, potentate of the aptly-named Larrikin Lounge, sat with me at a table in the rear and still had to raise his voice over the cheerful racket of the large, tipsy crowd of Friday night regulars (nothing like the melancholy crowd at my own pub across the street, who were dismally abstemious in their drinking and subdued in their conversation), but even after I doffed my hearing protectors I couldn't understand more than half of what he was shouting at me.
