Quandary Resolution 3587
preantepenultimate, zombie out, upbraid, remit

When Mr. Smetnick upbraided me for zombieing out in class, I assured him it was the preantepenultimate time it would happen--whereupon he lapsed into an embarrassed silence, unwilling to admit that he didn't know what the word meant; and he remitted his criticism, and receded into confusion at his desk, squirming and writhing and contorting his body into various shapes (including that of a fudge-covered pretzel); and wolves howled at the edge of the forest, and banshees wailed in the moonlight.
