Quandary Resolution 408
periphrastic, John Lennon glasses, fiery, solicitous
Mrs. Deever, ever solicitous of her friend’s opinion, didn’t comment on Martha’s periphrastic description of her yard sale as “An opportunity for strangers to pick at the remnants of a life spent in thankless toil before the grave finally closes over you,” but simply concentrated on placing fiery organza lampshades, albums by Eric Clapton and David Bowie, their cardboard sleeves flecked with wear, and poor Arthur’s lopsided John Lennon glasses in attractive formations on the decorating table set up over the yellow-spotted grass patch in front of her home.
