Quandary Resolution 5346
malinger, archeress, quibble, slumgullion
Fans of Diana, an archeress who styled herself after the mythical Goddess of the Hunt, began to lose heart when on the morning of the decisive tournament she appeared to malinger, first quibbling about the carrots in her lucky slumgullion breakfast, then about the bodkin points and fletchings on her silver arrows, the bend in her deflex bow, the weather, and generally anything within range of her abnormally acute eyesight, giving everyone the distinct impression she was "overdrawn."
