Quandary Resolution 3058
bovine, somnial, gallivant, deadpan

 

For an author who, by all accounts, had spent the last few years gallivanting about Europe being lionised by the glitterati, here he cut a curious figure of almost bovine impassivity, affecting a mien of deadpan indifference before the plaudits of the assembled company - unless of course it was that he had just momentarily slipped into that semi-somnial state which had engendered those fantastic tales of derring-do that had so often thrilled his readership.
