Quandary Resolution 5382
lickspittle, relict, eupeptic, parageusia
Gastronome, Master Chef and greying relict of the Old Cuisine, a man proud to a fault of his exquisite sense of taste (parageusia) and matching eupeptic ability, beamed with satisfaction at his dinner guests poised over their plates to savor the delicacies he had prepared for them in this his farewell dinner--beamed, that is, until his pet dog, "Lickspittle," escaped his leash, leapt onto the table, and landed messily between the Escargots de Bourgogne and Crêpe Suzettes.
