Quandary Resolution 5387
milksop, wassail, noel, advent
Inside the Flatiron Lounge Manhattan sophisticates sipped Wassail Fizzes, Bullshots, and "Milksops" (for the wimpish) to celebrate the season, while outside mufflered carolers sang White Christmas, The First Noel, and The Chipmuck Song (for the less devout) to commemorate the Advent of the Savior, their breaths condensing like numens in the cold winter air, snowflakes settling on their shoulders like blessings.
