Quandary Resolution 4631
magnanimous, jape, provenience, ha-ha

I found the two at dawn sprawled at the base of the ha-ha, the tools of their intended jape, a dozen cans of paint, festooning the fallen felons, but when I discovered the prank’s provenience was not personal but prompted by the proximity of the date, April Fools, their proposed play, a rather waggish portrayal intended to adorn the public aspect of my barn, I, in my magnanimity, struck a bargain: they would have a canvas for their graffiti art and I would have the other three sides of my barn rendered a rustic red.
