Quandary Resolution 4371
conversazione, relict, seasonal affective disorder, douce

Stepping out of an ill-attended soirée into the gloom of a chill afternoon I bemoaned this latest forlorn attempt at promoting a local conversazione, doomed because our presiding relict, shrouded in misery and widow's weeds, grew ever more glum thanks to one contributor's insinuatingly douce harping on about his susceptibility to seasonal affective disorder, which - so he maintained - was the wintry cause not only of his but also of our grumbling discontent.
