Quandary Resolution 3646
begrudge, lacrimae rerum, epaulet, luxate

I didn't begrudge Hyman his morbid indulgence in the lacrimae rerum (he'd scotch-taped 126 baby porcupines to his body and then rolled down a hill shrieking about "the pain, the frickin' pain of it all"), but I did take umbrage at the fact that he'd worn my cherished Waldorf Astoria toilet attendant's uniform to do it in; and as the doctors rushed his gurney toward the operating room to repair the luxation of his left shoulder (just below the tattered, ruined epaulet), I was there, running alongside them, shouting derisively down at the selfish historian that I hoped a baby porcupine had gotten inextricably wedged in the cleft of his hated tuchus, and assuring him that his days of being invited to my co-ed nude Twister games were a thing of the past.
