Quandary Resolution 3018
wainwright, oeillade, chasten, assay

Wayne Wright (who, as destiny would have it, was a wainwright by trade) cast an amorous oeillade at the rather hairy--yet strikingly attractive--woman whose carriage he was in the process of repairing; and in that furtive ogling glance he quickly assayed the likelihood of a possible tryst with her, somewhere among the glaucous reeds which clustered along the nearby riverbank, should the opportunity arise.1

1 This outcome, however, was knocked clear of all possibility by the chastening smack of a birch log, deftly wielded by the woman's jealous husband against the side of Wayne's leering cranium, plunging the wagon-maker into a brief but intriguing coma.
