Quandary Resolution 3501
gradgrind, sororate, lymphatic, caprice

 

Patrice, so full of caprice, surprised the whole village when she told her father that he was a gradgrind too unfeeling to go against the sororate following her sister’s sacrifice to the goddess of the volcano, and she refused to follow in her sibling’s footsteps to become the wife of the village high priest, even though such a union would allow her to enjoy a life of lymphatic luxury (albeit a short one) during which she could grow fat on bonbons while resting on silken cushions, and be cooled by peacock feather fans wielded by tall, dark and handsome servants.
