Quandary Resolution 4611
potpourri, fan death, flehmen, tranche

No flehmening to see, there were no animals; there was no bread, just the half-tranche of porridge that Hansel had greedily grabbed from Gretel who, not noticing the theft, was spellbound by her stepmother’s aberrant kindness in setting up a fan to dry Gretel’s flowers for potpourri; the stepmother, engrossed in her own thoughts: "it’s the fan death tonight or the woods tomorrow"; she pulled fast the door behind her.
