Quandary Resolution 4785
leviathan, effrontery, exiguous, droll

 

In retrospect, the apparition at the door was oddly amusing, a leviathan of a man, shaggy and squashed into a cub scout master’s uniform, wielding in one hand a baseball bat and in the other a collection can; It was Connie who opened the door and whispered to me, and I, seeing only our giant’s silhouette, expended the full measure of my exiguous courage and leaped upon the piano screaming, meanwhile, Connie, who calmed me and called me down from my perch, has had the effrontery to tell the tale to all our crowd ending with her now celebrated punchline, “ I said droll not troll”.
