Quandary Resolution 3765
hector, cogitable, lunette, numen

Hector was a bully and a blusterer, fond of hectoring his cousin Lunette, on whom he was wont to spy through the little lunette window of the old outhouse as the girl did her business; indeed it is cogitable (though unlikely) that Lunette was unaware of her cousin's presence at the window, just as it is cogitable that a divine numen (the so-called "spirit of the outhouse") punished Hector for his wickedness that summer, pulling him screaming into the toilet, whence he emerged never again--or so the tale is whispered around childhood campfires on dark, eerie nights, scarring the impressionable young listeners so badly that for the rest of their lives they will never be able to enter a Port-o-Potty.
