Quandary Resolution 301
cap-a-pie, claptrap, macédoine, martinet
After the roast duck, there was a macedoine of tropical fruits (concocted earlier in the afternoon by Guillaume, martinet of the kitchen, who had disallowed my Caucasian whortleberries in the mix because they were insufficiently equatorial), throughout which we listened to the latest faddish claptrap from Cousin Louise, a cap-a-pie fool if ever there was one.
