Quandary Resolution 2823
philtrum, psephology, palooka, Zeitgeist
It was a right hook to the philtrum that brought Rocky Schmaltziano's boxing career down for the count; and in the years that followed, the palooka tried his hand at a number of second careers, including psephology (which he diligently pursued for eighteen months, until he realized it wasn't psychology), and inventing various kind of grills (which he eventually abandoned as a trade unsuited to a former boxer); and then, at last, the 60s arrived, and the wind changed, and the Zeitgeist prescribed a long-haired, flower-laden immersion into a sea of free love and psychedelic drugs in a consequence-free environment; and at last Rocky knew he'd found his niche.
