Quandary Resolution 3844
cull, obloquy, verjuice, mignon

Turned down from the job of sexton (see June 4), Hortense Bracegirdle tried her hand at making apple juice but her teacher met her first attempt with barely contained obloquy: “You are as mignonne as a juice maker has a right to be in these parts, but if you can’t be bothered to cull the bad apples, you will just end up with unsaleable verjuice every time.”
