Quandary Resolution 4804
tar baby, adversity, diseuse, dais

Madame Worthington, the orator par excellence at the Women's School of Pomposity, was beckoned to the dais to receive her lifetime achievement award for her work not only as a diseuse but also as a mentor, helping fine young woman achieve grace and elegance in society, and publicly, unequivocably, dealing with the adversity of the many nefarious issues plaguing the community at the time, such as the sticky wicket of whether a young lady was expected to laugh after a gentleman made an off-color joke, or the tar baby of whether a refined debutante ought to correct an elder's grammatical mishap in front of others.
