Quandary Resolution 4773
gam, tumpline, verbose, polliwog
Sharkey was a good boss but kind of verbose: instead of telling me I had skinnier gams than the other girls he'd always call me his "polliwog among  the fulsome frogs", and if one day my hair was frizzy he'd say, "Girl, looks like you carryin' a tumbleweed in your tumpline!"
