Quandary Resolution 3236
darkle, insensate, conversant, harrowing

 

When I rang the geriatric ward to enquire after Aunt Meg, the staff nurse told me that the old girl was already insensate; that no, she wasn't conversant with her medical records; and that I shouldn't find the death harrowing, since that would only darkle my customary sunny disposition.
