Quandary Resolution 4638
sagacious, snail mail, boulevardier, aperture


“I was born Toulouse and when I married the boulevardier Auguste Lautrec, my last name became Toulouse-Lautrec, we worked in the escargots trade, sending, through the very first snail mail service in the world, our most delectable specimens, the ones with the largest shells and smallest apertures, to Europe's finest restaurants”, Eugenie Toulouse-Lautrec wrote in her seminal work Guide d’Escargots pour l'Idiot Fini (translated in English as The Complete Idiot's Guide to Snails), a historic document which gives us a glimpse into the daily life of France during the Second Empire thanks to the sagacity and preservationist efforts of that period's belletrists.
