Quandary Resolution 4340
wakerife, neotenous, commensal, lagan

The three brothers Jetsam, Flotsam, and Lagan had the good fortune of neoteny — they remained wakerife into old age, kept up their jolly commensal meals, and helped each other stay young at heart — but when they took their perilous trip to the beach one summer day — Jetsam with his love of the shore, Flotsam with his craze for swimming, and Lagan with his preference for deep diving — they could not keep together, and sadly they each met a separate fate.
