Quandary Resolution 2937
manciple, recompensing, temporize, eisegesis

When Professor Flatus asked me to summarize the key themes in Frodo Cräpling's The Manciple & the Serving Wench, I was "caught with my pants down around my ankles," as we used to say back on the farm; so I temporized, ad-libbing some off-the-cuff eisegesis about Roderick "recompensing" the serving wench after-hours, as a sort of side deal the two servants had worked out.
