Quandary Resolution 3715
gloze, oubliette, bedizen, reconnoiter

Inspector Fudgypucker's meticulous reconnoitering of my secret laboratory was thorough enough to uncover that most clandestine part of it--the oubliette--despite my attempts to bedizen it with various camouflaging furniture and garish accessories; so I had to fall back on Plan B: insouciantly glozing the dungeon, as though 'twere the least of trifles, no more than a bit of underground storage (this, however, also failed to throw the tenacious Algerian off my trail, and in the end I was forced to push him down into the subterranean prison and hold him captive there for a fortnight or so, while I laid my final plans for world domination).
