Quandary Resolution 5119
elflock, avail, miscible, impolitic

Sitting on our porch very late one night, seeing a dripping specter walking stiffly up the street, I was startled when the apparition turned up our walk, paused, shook back her wet and matted elflock and asked if I knew whether a soak in the local lake would avail her in removing poison ivy from her body, and, recognizing her as the young Lolita from the apartment next door, I apprised her that, sadly, the irritant was not miscible in water—and said no more since, seeing how she was walking and where she was scratching, I decided it might be impolitic to ask how she had come by such a rash in the small hours of the night by such an isolated lake.
